This slug was enjoying his feast...but apparently they can't eat a whole one Found yesterday in a very cold & hail swept Epping forest....Brrrrrr
f8 @ 0.3 sec
first class find and capture, looks quite amazing, well done
A good find Mike but it does make me smile,we spend all that time looking for perfect ones & these are the culprits that munch away as fast as the shutter goes down

Neither can I
Thanks for your support
Nor would you want to Janet
yummy ,just love the colour ,and that slug haha
Brilliant shot - well spotted - Elizabeth
At last a fungi shot with a difference. Well done. Andy
Great capture Mike, have you put the DSLR kit up on ebay yet
Am hoping to get over to BP again tomorrow for a good look around.
All the best
A perfect find, Mike, and a superb shot. The toadstool sits very comfortably between the two arching branches and on its bed of green.
Appreciate all your comments & votes
Think I'll hang onto the big stuff for a while longer Clive...unless you're thinking of making me an offer I can't refuse
Have a great weekend,
Fantastic capture, a perfect composition. Carol

Excellent shot Mike; great detail and love the setting with the autumn forest with bonus of the landslide on the stalk and the slug.
I don't know much about fungi lifecycles - are they trying to attract slugs to help them to spread?
Lucky timing to find the culprit in action. That little camera's great for capturing close-ups in the context of their wider surroundings. It's probably good for your back too...
Thank you for taking the time to look, vote & comment
No Tim, the slugs just like to make looking for a good one harder for us togs The fungi have something similar to a root system: hyphae or thread like filaments make up the mycelium, which spreads underground/under tree bark etc & in turn produces the visible fungi under the right conditions. Fungi are the fruiting bodies and distribute spores (seeds for want of a better description) to produce future generations.
It's good to travel light occasionally Tony and still be able to take images & yes it does ease the back too
What an incredible shot. Seen plenty that have been attacked but never seen one with a resident in like this. Well done for spotting it.
Superb detail and colour.....well seen and taken shot...
Thank you both for your comments appreciated
Lovely detail in this one Mike.
