Wikipedia says this is probably Laetiporus sulphureus, commonly called crab-of-the-woods, sulphur shelf, and my all-time favorite fungus name: chicken-of-the-woods. In a forest of tall, old trees, with everything dark green and brown, this pumpkin-colored thing really wanted to have its picture taken.

It's been a long wait!

This small stand of yellow ones was next to a sidewalk. First time I've seen bright yellow mushrooms.

It sure has been a long wait and I'm really enjoying it. Love the little yellow mushrooms.

I found this yesterday, like the yellow mushrooms, but in later afternoon, when the light was fading. I brought it home and photographed it today. The yellow cluster, 15 mm long, is attached to the end of a cut twig that was on moist ground amid other debris from a pruned tree as well as leaf litter.

Thanks. I don't know what it is. It's resting on damp soil in a planter box. I'll keep watching it.

Some more witches butter. Tremella mesenterica,,,,for you latin types. it can grow in very large batches. It can dry out and just about disappear,,,then with lots of rain re-hydrates and presents itself again.

Thanks for the ID. Tremella mesenterica at Wikipedia (external link)
It may be T. aurantica, also shown on that Wikipedia page. The lobes are more rounded than flat.

This is a very attractive and eye catching mushroom. And yes it is edible. Bear's-head Tooth mushroom (Hericium americanum)
