Slime Mold


Fallen log of a silver fir tree, by the bank of a lake. Altitude: 4,000m (12,000ft).


This group of Slime mould was spotted near lake Memencho, a lake deep inside rhododendron and silver fir forests. We usually come here for trout angling (yes we practice 'catch & release'). This time it's for stocking of frey. So we collected them from the nearby hatchery and took them to far away lakes and streams. We do this as voluntary service every year. By the way, it's not at Gangtok as shown by Google, and terribly cold here even in this season. Actually this place's near Nathu-la, India-China border.

Yes, it's our duty to guide them, especially when it concerns our future: nature, bio-diversity, climate change, carbon-foot print, global warming, etc., etc, they need to know all about them and be concerned about! Thanks Gilma anyway.

Love your comment!! DrNamgyalT.Sherpa. A great thing to do and an example for the son's and daughter's of the future.

Hi Nuwan, thanks for liking it. It's quite valuable in the sense we'd to spare two days to reach this remote and wild place along with our daughter and son (during their summer vacation!), put up there in that cold night all in the name of 'science', 'environment', biodiversity'!
