31 August 16: Bright orange slime Mould growing on a well-rotted tree stump most likely pine. Forestry Commission coniferous forest. The stump was a stones throw from a freshwater loch. Will try and go back to see how it develops.....

3 September 16: Updated post with 2 photographs (4 & 5) taken today. The surface of the slime Mould was much darker, so much so that I did not realise it was still there until I looked at the photographs when I got home.
