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.
