Photographer's Note

A change from pictures of buildings now and 'Back to nature'.
Walking through a field we spotted this dead tree that had fallen, and on closer inspection we saw how new life was taking over using the dead wood for food and support.

I think that this is the bracket fungus "Turkeytail" but please correct me if you know differently.

This bracket fungus forms semi-circular caps around tree trunks. The caps are thin and tough, with very clear velvety concentric rings of colour.
It grows on deadwood, mainly hardwood such as beech or oak; it is very common!
Look carefully, there is a slug.

Thanks for looking.
