|This fungi is growing from a fallen tree at the front of my home.|
Dryad's Saddle (Polyporus squamosus) is quite an imposing and massive fungus which forms tiered brackets on ash, elm and other deciduous trees. Appears June - September. Upper surface creamy buff with dark brown-scales. Lower surface creamy white with large pores.
Thanks for viewing

Excellent capture of this Dryads Saddle, well seen against the ivy-covered tree trunk with fine sharpness and from a good POV. Younger brackets are supposed to be edible but I have never tried it.
Thanks and thanks also for your kind words on my 600th posting,
