Chicken of the Woods
Posted By: Tom Lusk, 10-19-2007, 05:17 PM

This large edible fungus (this specimen is approx. 18"/45cm. wide) appears mostly in the fall, growing on decaying trees or logs.

They are sometimes called "chicken of the woods". Not sure why.

Tastes just like chicken???

Beautiful detail Tom - the focus, DOF, bokeh outstanding. I think it is called "Chicken of the Woods" perhaps as may be the long lost mystery of where the 'nuggets' come from for all those chicken nuggets the FF restaurant’s sell.

Have you cooked it and eaten it yourself? They looked so colourful to be edible...
