Fungus/Mushrooms

Another cold cloudy day had me wanting a short outing.

Research turned up many names to choose from for these:

False turkey tails (Stereum ostrea) are smooth underneath,

and turkey tails (Trametes versicolor) have pores underneath.

My last find was reddish-brown crust (Hymenochaste tabacina).

I left feeling refreshed, even though the outing was short.
