These bright orange mushrooms, which were growing in clusters on a dead tree, immediately caught my attention as we drove down a winding, wooded road. Known as ‘Chicken of the Woods’, these edible, wild mushrooms fit in perfectly with all the other beautiful colors of autumn that we are seeing.

Those are gorgeous mushrooms. Beautiful photos.
I’ve never seen mushrooms like this before – they sure are photogenic!
This was a first for me too. The bright orange really popped out against the brown of the forest floor.
Beautiful pics ✨
My pleasure 🌸
have you ever tried them Rebecca?
No, never have. I’ve heard that they taste like chicken.
Well,If your ever stuck out in the bush it just might be important to know.
I should know about the local flora to be honest.
I have a friend who is a mushroom expert! I always enjoy going out and learning!
