This is an unusual green/yellowish, rather than the typical mottled red/green. I'm not sure how this happens--less direct sun, maybe?
This is the typical mottled red and green flower, before the leaves unfurl.
Stereum is a parchment fungus, which grows on wood. Also called False Turkey Tails.
Exidia recisa is a jelly fungus that grows on dead sticks and branches. It is moist and soft, but dries out quickly. This is also called Amber Jelly, but in many cases can be dark reddish/purplish brown, as well as amber.
Exidia recisa have the sharper ridges seen here, while the upper surface of the true Jelly Ear (Auricularia auricula) are silky to downy with no sharp ridges. I THINK Jelly Ears are larger, too, but that remains to be seen...
Gilled fungus, growing on wood. Also called Late Oyster. Brownish green to olive green to blue-green cap with off-white gills that sometimes have a peach or yellow tint. The point of attachment to the wood is usually quite pronounced, the gills do not run all the way into the attachment point.
This is growing from a beech log.

Not sure why this isn't recognized by iNat??
Moist white fungus growing on the ground. Hollow or chambered projections cluster together at the base.
This beetle was about 1/2 the size of a typical ladybug.
