Interesting photo you've sent in. By just looking at it my first reaction was also that it was an exotic fungus, but when I think about the nature of the growth resembles a gall more than a fungus. Fungal growth of this type on trees tends to be smooth. The cause of the bright orange colouring could well be fungal but I guess this is a growth caused by a gall wasp or other insect, possibly covered by fungal growth.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Quite amazing that nature is capable of creating such a deep and vibrant colour.Liked your note and the explanation by "Argus".Good DOF with the kit lens.The low light has given good texture.Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Muy buenas Shir
Menudo viajecito te diste, debe de ser una zona increible para ver, fotografiar y disfrutar de esas bellezas naturales. Y de las que nos estamos cargando sin llegar a conocerlas..... pero bueno eso es otro tema.
Curiosa foto de ese hongo, me gusta también mucho la bromelia que subiste....
