Hen in the Woods Mushroom - Grifola frondosa by 


This mushroom is called “Hen in the Woods” – can’t tell you why! It typically grows in clusters at the foot of oak trees but can be found in other situations. These are common in Eastern America and rare in the west.

This picture was taken in a hardwood forest in Green Lane, PA on September 23, 2009.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    Yum yum! I think some people refer to it by this name because the texture is much like cooked chicken? Others THINK it tastes like fowl for some reason (I don’t). Love this edible! Another re-occuring fungi….you can harvest this for years on the same tree if you’re lucky
