It’s autumn so mushrooms are starting to pop up. I recently got a mushroom guide to help me learn about the different kinds that I might find in the UK. Last night I saw what I think are mica caps. One of them had a little guest: a slug! I wonder if it took a wrong turn or was deliberately there seeking shelter or perhaps a midnight snack?
I studied biomedical sciences and researched molecular origins of Parkinson's disease for my PhD. Since graduation, I have worked as a science writer, technical author, and medical writer. In my spare time I enjoy writing, illustration, crafts, reading, and travelling.View all of alexvanderwateren's posts.
