It's Hard For Me To Identify Mushrooms or a Fungi

Color me dumb!  I have been seeing on Facebook all the interesting photos of those beautiful large mushrooms and fungi that people are finding.




These are all lovely and amazing.  I love seeing all the different varieties.  Even the ugly ones are beautiful in their own way.



Some people even find edible mushrooms although they all look the same to me.


Imagine how excited I was when I saw an amazing display growing on the side of a tree.  


As we got closer, I asked my husband what kind of fungus he thought it was.


He pulled the car over so we could get a photo and a closer look.


Take a good look.  It's insulating foam.  I wonder how many other people were fooled.  At least I hope we weren't the only ones.

Thanks to Dee Ann McGary and Joanne Vogt for the use of their photos.
