This one stumped me. I watched as it began fruiting on a large maple limb that looks as if it’s been down for a long time. The iNaturalist bot was suggesting they might be oysters, but there were no gills so I figured it was some sort of polypore.
Found a beautiful flush of turkey tail while I was walking Sunny near Dove Cottage recently. Took me a bit to figure out if it was the real deal or false turkey tail. It’s real. Might harvest some to make tea …
Pretty sure this third photo is turkey tail, too, but I didn’t check to see if it has pores so I’m not certain. I was more smitten with the way it was surrounded by moss.
I set up my game cam in the north hollow a few weeks ago and was eager to retrieve the images on it. Overall, disappointment. Lots of squirrels. A few interesting canine type critters. Raccoons. And my favorite of the bunch: a wild turkey.
