Growing on a eucalyptus beside Sunset Ridge Fire Road
Massive fungal growth at base of tree.
Several growing on a large live oak.
Harvested for dinner. Delicious!
Chicken of the woods. A delicious edible mushroom.
These shelves were about a foot deep - the largest I have ever seen.
Laetiporus sulphureus. Rock Creek Park, Washington, DC, USA
Bark resembled ash up higher
On a sugar maple (next entry)
this mushroom was fairly big and was high up in the tree. I am not sure if it was one big mushroom or bunch of mushrooms but it was around 3 feet.I saw it right near the highpark entrance and didn't see any other mushrooms in that area.
Found near the stump of a Eucalyptus tree. Someone had kicked the fungus off the tree stump.
Found it while I was looking for salamanders. Cool colors.
