Witches' butter

Tremella mesenterica

Description:

about 2″ to 3″ in diameter, photographed in a little park at the overlook for Snoqualmie Falls, Washington.

Habitat:

a grassy park-like area strewn with pine needles after a misty rainfall; a very damp area frequently misted from the nearby falls.

Notes:

I would guess it is a fungus

Not 100% certain of the ID, but it looks similar. Maybe someone else can confirm.
