Predatory fungus

An amazing fern-eating polypore:


Side view.
It's on a decaying stump, blanketed with dead leaves and moss, shaded by evergreen ferns. Which the polypore has latched onto. I tugged on it; it's as immovable as the fungus itself.

And the polypore, in turn, has become slug dinner. Chewed chunks, top centre, far left.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
