I Found Gold in the Woods!

I was on my first visit to Padworth Common Nature Reserve, half an hour from home. It is a mainly deciduous woodland, with lots of deep leaf litter and rotten, fallen wood. Even so, I found only about a dozen mushrooms.
However, I found two colonies of slime mould of different species.

This colony caught my attention when I saw the intense yellow in a crevice in the surface of willow bark. When I photographed it in my home, outdoor "studio" I could see it was quite different from any I had seen before. In particular there was the rounded but quite deep sculpturing.

At the moment, I don't know the genus.

The colony is about 3mm wide. I photographed it via my Laowa 25mm x2.5 to x5 at magnifiacation x2.5, x4 and x5, using twin TTL flash.

The stereos are crosseye.


The body is willing but the mind is weak.
