Caption: Parasitic fungus (Cordyceps tuberculata) on a moth. This parasitic fungus alters the behaviour of its host before killing it. Infected moths will die in high places which enables the spores of the fungus to be spread easily. This type of fungus is rare. Photographed in November, in Brittany, France.
