Gangsters in the Forest

As a matter of fact, things can never turn out right for all the time.

These mushrooms are found stranded on the door step in front of a monster spider. Time is tickling away; anxiety is being squeezed out, and is the only thing that is leaving for the photo shooting session.

They must be able to call for help if they know a device called mobile phone.

By the way, my camera simply fails to focus properly in front of this monster. My mushroom friends sure have their reason to have fear somehow.

Thing can be even worse when I hear a mushroom screaming in pain not far away. A gangster cricket is tearing it down piece by piece. Its day has been spoiled.

But this is a part of laws of nature and I cannot help much. The cycle repeats as day goes on.

As I move on, a green warrior and I brush passed each other.

It is still raining everyday in Malaysia. Mushroom must really enjoy this time of the year then.

Lol)..you brushed passed the green warrior..love it! Well, its true, there's a war going on all the time! When we had sugar cane back when I first came to the islands, you'd fine these big cane spiders everywhere! I found them to be most friendly..but I'm sure something else out in the fields would of begged to differ with me? I'd favor a spider over a roach any day though! Enjoyed your photos:)

Oh yes, there are wars going on all the time.

You like it or not, only the fittest survive.

Conflict and war is one of the things that nature is all about. Every creature and plant tries to survive the best it can. Good post.

I can't quite figure out that first photo. If those are mushrooms, where are the stems? Why do they look like they are stuck up there?

One of the mushrooms is being eaten alive! You are their only hope to record their struggles.
