Sparassis crispa: The Cauliflower Mushroom. This large, unmistakable fungus can be found growing from the bases or roots of pine trees in summer and fall--or in winter, in warmer climes. It is a popular edible, and by most accounts it is exceptionally good. This one was growing in my neighbor's yard.

Pam, This is a wonderful fungus and would be nice to see a larger image. TN allows images to 800 pixies wide I suggest you make the best of this.

Hi Pam,

I recognize your fungi. I have made also a photo in the Netherlands from such fungi. They are very special. It looks like coral (or cauliflower) Nice capture. Natural colors. Your POV and BG are good. The DOF good be better. Take that advise from fungiman to post photos around the size till 800 pixels. For my photo use this link. http://www.treknature.com/gallery/Europe/Netherlands/photo117661.ht, or http://www.treknature.com/gallery/photo138954.htm for the newest one.
