Chicken of the woods


Yorkshire Sculpture Park  It's not always easy to decide what is art and what isn't. Just wandering around the Yorkshire Sculpture Park so attunes one's mind to sculptural forms that you start to notice the shapes in nature too. I know very little about fungus but googling the various pictures and sites, this appears most similar to one called 'Chicken of the Woods' (Laetiporous sulphureus), which is supposed to be edible. I wouldn't try it, not based on my identification anyway!

  1. We have these over here but I'm reluctant to try them until I have a mushroom expert at my side. They ARE beautiful.
