a fly feast

A few of my summer shots for @balticbadger #mushroommonday photo challenge.

This is a very tiny nameless shroom (size comparable with a grown-up fly! its an ordinary fly, not some gigantic mutant species) that was growing on an old birch stump 3 steps from the doorsteps of my house. Luckily, it was a sunny morning and I happened to seize a good natural lighting. (All pics were taken in one shot, no stacking applied.)


I assume it must be tasty and useful, full of good nutrition elements... at least for the flies: look, it had such a feast, it couldnt even to take off!


By the way, these shrooms are very soft and delicate, they become cured and dry literally in a couple of days.

taken with Canon 5d + Sigma 150mm
location: countryside near St.Petersburg, Russia.

strange fly, maybe it feeds exclusively on these mushrooms? )))
The color of her satisfying abdomen is interesting

странная муха, может она питается исключительно этими грибами? )))
Цвет её сытного брюшка интересный

idk... imo, an ordinary Russian Grey Fly.

обычная серая назойливая, такая вот разновидность

Abdomen too light for regular flies

Для обычной мушки слишком светлое брюшко

one of my 3 fave fun challenges here on steemit!
do you have some shrooms around, to share on fridays, or are you a happy habitant of a concrete-asphalt-neon megapolis?.. @ninahaskin
