365: Deadly Little Buggers

This is a little seed pod thingie that falls off some trees around campus. Looks kind of like a puffer fish and I'm here to let you know, just as deadly. It was chilly (by CA standards mind you) and rainy today so as I quickly walked across campus I was more concerned about staying warm and dry than about little time bombs waiting to happen. Well the heel of my shoe stepped down on one of these miniature boobytraps and I nearly flew off the sidewalk. Thankfully my gracefulness was working today and I didn't fall down. After a quick adjustment and a furious look around to see if anyone noticed (nope!) I continued on my way. Whew. Disaster avoided.
