The Fungi World (293) : Dog Vomit Slime Mold

The Fungi Kingdom consists of amazing and fascinating creatures.
Have a look at this unique Dog Vomit Slime Mold with its peculiar yellow appearance.

A bit mysterious creature !
Slime moulds are usually growing on old well-rotted logs in damp and shady forest areas, because there they can find the moisture and bacteria required for survival.

It’s a creeping fungus that moves very slowly.

Dutch name : Heksenboter
German name : Gelbe Lohblüte
Latin name : Fuligo septica

    its all too pretty english name ; ))) makes me take a step back, just in case, and look at it from a distance… ; ) the felt-like texture and the sunny color – fascinating and, yes, quite surprisingly beautiful, but also strange and mysterious! it makes me think of spider nests… greetings, sabine.
