I also seek oak leaves so either way it is still likely Sparassis in my opinion
I see a pinecone there. Was it an old pine? Sparassis is usually under hardwoods but occasionally under conifers. Regardless it is a beautiful fungus. Great find
It was on an old stump. No other trees around.
I don't think this is a Hen of the woods. Please describe the habitat where you found it (types of trees nearby, etc.). This is especially important for mushroom ID as many only grow where certain types of trees grow. I think it more resembles Sparassis but please look into possible lookalikes as well.
I think that this may be Hen of the Woods but hoping that a mushroom expert could weigh in.
