Orange on the fields

We had our resident lawn care specialist, Chris Lanager, look at the orange colored material appearing on our grass, more specifically towards the wood line.  He said it is rust fungus which sometimes arrives late summer due to high heat and humidity.  Said definitely no health and safety concerns and that it will go away on its own when it starts to cool down.
