Mycena arcangeliana (NL: Bundelmycena / EN: Angel's bonnet, Late-season bonnet / DE: Olivgelber Helmling / FR: Mycène olivâtre).
You probably recognised the same mushroom-species as in yesterdays post... For more info on the species: see there.
The little insect (order hemiptera) caught my eye as it was making its way up under the umbrella-protection of the mushroom. It stayed there for a little while before climbing all the way up into the cap of the mushroom, using the cap as a shelter and becoming invisible for the outside world... During the whole photo-session it stayed there... About 15 minutes later it started raining ... Is it possible that this little insect was able to predict the rain and searched a shelter in advance ? Natures interactions can be so wonderful !
