Inedible mushroom that vaguely resembles the very edible hedgehog, but with drops of red fluid on top. Underneath, the gills are little tubes that resemble hair, spikes or "teeth"

My favorite to see and photograph. Usually I see them all dried up :(

Usually I find them either dried up and blackish, or rotting and very sticky/slimy. This was quite a find in my book. It was a great day for mushroom photography, as I also found the Sarcodan in the same area... and about 3 quarts of chanterelles

One of their other common names is strawberries and cream(for the Zombie apocolypse, maybe!)
