Hydrated and Dehydrated jelly fungi
treated wooden plank these fungi do not decay wood but rather feed on other wood decaying fungi
Beautiful orange jelly fungus do not have stems nor gills but have the amazing ability to absorb up to 60% of their mass in water after just a short shower. To me they closely resemble soft coral and after research I found there is a variety of elk-horn fungi just like the coral. This is new and interesting for here as we don't receive much rain but after a shower these sprung up quite unexpectedly. Apparently they are edible but I don't think I will try but I have new found respect for the fungus kingdom and actually search for them now.
