Fuzzy Turkey Tail Shelf Fungus - Trametes ochracea by 

I’m about 85% okay with this ID – any corrections are most welcome. Shelf fungi, also called plate or bracket fungi, are found on dead and dying trees and branches. What we see on the outside is merely the fruiting body, the rest is inside the host plant.

This picture was taken September 26, 2009, in a hardwood forest in Green Lane, PA.

For some nice pictures of color variations, see this web site:


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.
