Sunday Fungi: What’s This?

Not all fungi are mushroom-shaped. Many are brackets. But some also are… this

Yellow Stagshorn

I tend not to frequent pine forests. Which might explain why, in all these years, this is my first encounter with the Yellow Stagshorn, for it likes to feed on dead pines. Oh my, was I excited when I took this pic.

    Why do you avoid pine forests? Look at what you have been missing sharing with us! I see everyone else feels the sea has left behind a piece of her in the shape of coral – and we expect a picture one day of the Coral fungi that grows in grassland πŸ˜‰

    I can see why you were excited; I would have been. At first glance I though it was a staghorn type coral. And that is what is magical about the image and especially that yellow color. Hope you find more of those to shoot. So very cool!
