actually, it looks like a deer fly in the Hybomitra genera. The Western Horse Fly is usually the species scene in OR. Bother horse flies and deer flies have those nice looking and colorful eyes. The body of the fly suggests a deer fly.
this is just a guess, no species, just genera. As the Amanita species grow old and withered their edged tend to turn up, showing the gills like the one in the picture. Many Amanita species are also known to have very large caps.
That's a very nice shot. The tortoise still has a nice looking and shiny shell. I've seen them on both the east and west coasts of FL.Hope he or she grows to a ripe old age because FL is attempting to increase and stabilize the population.
After looking at all the pictures, it looks like an Amophilia wasp. The thread-waist gives it away. Otherwise, great golden digger wasps also have the black and red abdomens. Amphilia are not at all aggressive and they help pollinate flowers.
I also think birch poypore because there are not many bracket mushrooms that have a kidney shape. They tend to grow in singles. If it were something like oyster mushrooms, you would have a bunch of them growing together.
