Chicken Mushroom

We weren’t chicken to eat Laetiporus sulfureus even though none of the locals here know the Chicken Mushroom as a delectable edible. Here is once again a species with a strong affinity with northern temperate forests. This mushroom was growing on a rotted oak log on a recent ascent up to the peak of Mount Totumas. This image could have just as easily been taken in upstate New York.
