While visiting a new woods with a friend of mine, she spotted this very cool mushroom, and knew the name of it, Pheasant Back Mushroom also known as Dryads Saddle.

For a fungi, I thought it was rather pretty, and fits the name of it. :)

This will be my contest entry.

I appreciate your comments, thank you!

Sandi, I've seen many of them with the same size, but not one with such splendid patterns. An amazing scene, perfectly seen and captured by you (per usual)!

I wish you the Best of Luck with it in the contest, my friend!

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

I wonder if it is eatable? Imagine some dough, sauce, cheese, and assorted toppings and presto. you've got a mess to clean up.

Mushrooms and other fungus are so vast that it has its own kingdom on the taxonomic chart. Good capture.

It certainly fits its name, looking very much like the back feathers on a female pheasant. Looking at some of the more recent comments here, it appears you won a contest with it. Been away for quite a while so I will need to go check out all the entries.

Take care.
