These are the young fruiting bodies of Beech Jellydisc Fungus growing in sunlight on a large moss-covered fallen branch. This photo, taken at close range, shows a narrow opening at the top of each globe; these openings will later expand into discs. From a distance, these fruiting bodies resembled tiny eyeballs.

For more information on this species, and an image of a larger group (photographed at the same site on the following day), see: NS3878 : Beech Jellydisc Fungus (Neobulgaria pura).
