Wow! I've never seen one like that, but it definitely has the 'wow' factor:)

That is a wow photo Ki, icky but so cool at the same time. Looks slightly alien, a bit X Files(ish). ;)

Sorry for the tardy reply to the comments. The last of our Thanksgiving guests should be leaving by Wed. so I should be more on schedule in a few days.

Hi Iowa gardening woman,
They grow in great clusters so you can't miss them. Fortunately it is growing in an out of the way place so people don't trample or kick them before I can usually take some pictures. I will post several more on my Mucknmire blog.

Hi Wildlife gardener,
All those encrustations and large size make it sort of neat to look at. And the color is pretty gorgeous too. Definitely one of the more beautiful mushrooms I have seen.

Hi Ruth,

I know a lot of people don't like mushrooms but I seem to like them. Now spiders give me the creeps.

Actually I read where we share some of the DNA of mushrooms and fungus and that's why it's so difficult to get rid of athlete's foot or fungal infections.

Hi Deemom,
Kinda pretty in my opinion. I just posted more photos of this mushroom on the Mucknmire blog. Thanks for stopping by.

Hey I have a photo of a similar mushroom. :) I likes yours too!

Hi Lisa Marie,
I guess it's a fairly common mushroom but highly distinctive. There's one that's red instead of orange which I hope I come across one of these days. Thanks for stopping by.
