Thanks Maria. The more I look at it it reminds me of a small fire! Someone must have set me up before I got there. :-)

Very nice spotting - and it does look burned in the first photo! :>)

Added a photo of a fresh specimen before I applied the flame-thrower... Just kidding. The black tips are just part of the decay process. :-)

Thanks Mark... It's not easy carrying a flame thrower into the woods you know. Hard work... :-)
