    What is this interesting plant / saprophyte Very neat looking

    While out in the woods here is south Eastern pa I found this growing in a Y of a fallen Oak tree about 2' above the creel water level and I would think that during a heavy rain it would be under water,
    Its in a mostly shady location but will get a bit of scattered sun and occasional direct light,
    Its about 5" wide and nearly 12" tall,
    Feels like a sponge.
    Interesting,
    Heres two pics and I have more if you want them.

    Omygod! it is the deadly crustacean creeper! Do not go near it without a herbicidal weapon.
    Funguses like this are not to be ignored.

    It's a variety of Hericium, a mushroom. It's edible and highly prized. There are 4 varieties in the US. It is popular in Japan and Chinese medicines.

    Holy Fungus Tommy, You're right!
    How do you know such things?
    I quick look says folks actually pay 50c a gram for this stuff,
    I am out riding my mountain bike a couple days a week with the puppy beagle and I go right past this fungus and may harvest it to eat on a nice swiss burger,
    Maybe a bit of bacon too?
    Anyway,
    Its out standingly lovely and interesting to look at,
    Now I wonder how it will taste,
    I can go back early next week,
    Thanks all !
    Ill tell Eileen that you guys know what anything is ! ! !

    I will let you in on a little secret. If you use "Chrome" as your web browser you can right click on any picture and that will open a task shortcut menu. One of the menu items reads "search google for image" click on that and voila! Not every picture will return the results you are looking for but the vast majority do. Sorry LT
