Doubledecker Fungus

Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporus), a double shelf in Van Horn Park, Springfield, MA, October 2013

Chicken of the Woods in Springfield, MA

The gorgeous color of the sulphur shelf mushroom, Laetiporus, in days of waning green is startling. This tree has produced extraordinarily large and beautiful specimens, with differing patterns and shades of yellow and orange over the years.

I am so glad I recorded this on Oct. 9th (click to enlarge the image), because this morning it was ruined. Someone had seen fit to destroy it, – just because it was there.
