The real name of this bracket fungus we came across on our visit to Renishaw Hall near Sheffield, (see yesterday), is Laetiporous Sulphureus, or Chicken of the Wood.
I took this in the rain using the on-camera flash at the base of the tree among some shrubs so I am quite pleased with how it has come out.
It is eatable apparently and is cooked in the same manner as chicken. More details are available at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laetiporus
Now tomorrow you are in for a treat or a shock, whichever way you look at it, for I am coming out of my shell to say "Hello!"
