Nice ones, lam3164. I don't think these fungi are chanterelles (Cantharellus cibarius) though, but perhaps false chanterelles (Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca) or jack-o'-lantern mushrooms (Omphalotus sp.). The fungi in your photos have gills and the chanterelle has what is sometimes called veins or false gills.

Nice finding lam3164,from the photos it seems a chanterelle,but iam not 100% sure,so dont eat them,ok? :) see this link
