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 Wink

Quote:but apparently they can't eat a whole one

Neither can I Wink

A perfect find, Mike, and a superb shot. The toadstool sits very comfortably between the two arching branches and on its bed of green.

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 Smile

No Tim, the slugs just like to make looking for a good one harder for us togs Wink 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 Wink

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.
