Thanks Susan! I think it was so content with its food that it wasn't bothered with me taking lots of photos.

Wonderful series! It looks as though the slug had a real feast with this mushroom.

Thanks beaker98! I was just lucky to have walked past this little guy. Didnt bother it at all that I was taking loads of photos, just kept chomping away on the mushroom :)
