    Birch island is one of my favorite places to hunt for fungi. We have not had rain for a few weeks now, so I did not expect to find anything of interest while I was out there. But just as I was leaving the park, I saw this beauty.

    Grifola frondosa? can anyone confirm the ID




    Other pics taken a couple miles down the road at another park

    One tastes better than the other to predators.

    Dyflam...you have your finger on the pulse of knowlege. That's very interesting.

    Those are great photos Voodoolizard! Wonderful fungi. I've took some mushroom shots at the park a few weeks ago. A nice yellow one. I've got some good butterfly photos from the park too. Thanks for posting.

    If your asking about the mushroom, Grifola frondosa (Hen-of-the-woods) it is said to be very tasty... I'm not sure about the butterfly.

    It seems every time I take the camera out I come home with a pic of some type of fungi and some type of winged critter... pics taken acouple weeks ago

    Coral mushroom


    slime mold


    moth


    Thanks for looking... and I'm glad you enjoyed them.
