Orange Fungi

The weather has been a little crummy lately, keeping me from capturing magical light in the pre-dawn hour. I decided to head out to a forest preserve that I haven’t been to in quite some time. It was damp and drizzled on and off all morning but I enjoyed myself a great deal.

I even came across this orange fungus that I’ve never seen before. Apparently, it’s edible when it’s still soft. Laetiporus sulphureus or Chicken-of-the-Woods can be found around the world. Can you guess what it tastes like?
