Life On A Piece Of Wood

Stopped by a piece of wood that was covered with bracket fungus. First thing that I noticed through the lens was puffs of brownish smoke rising above the fungus. It was surreal but the lens couldn't capture the smoke. What is was, was the fungi releasing spores.Then I noticed movement on the tops of the fungi. It took some time to make out the Toad Grasshoppers as these were just as tiny and blended into the wood work. They were eating the fungi.Then the other toad grasshopper came into sight on a leaf.This one eats rotting wood.
