Do you eat the orange bracket fungi in the first set of pics ( #8 and 9)?
It is Laetiporus sulphureus var cininnatus - which here is edible and considered choice when young, fresh, and tender. the edges of the brackets are the growth area and i trim the edges off on older ones, just taking the most waxy buttery growth and leaving anything fibrous for the worms.

Fantastic photos as always kocos.

Thanks for the kind words Grey. We did manage to pick several pounds of very young tender bracket "pins" which were fried with onion and new potatoes :) we too beleive it is actually a pretty good eating mushroom. Chantrells and boletes should start popping soon :)

i loooooove Laetiporus sulfureus.....here we call it chicken of the woods (not to be confused with hen of the woods which is Grifola frondosa and is also good), some people have a mild reaction to it, nothing serious- a light tingle to the lips when eaten.
I only eat super young ones or the 1/2" or so trimmed from the edges of mature ones, once in awhile youll find one thats large and tender throughout....but thats not the norm. It tends to turn a cream sauce a bit orange like its natural color -- i think its cool though ;not unappetizing at all. a cream soup made with this one and a little dry sherry and some carmelized leeks is amazing.....for preservation either sauteeing then freezing or making the soup then freezing is the best idea.....dried ones lose thier flavor and are tougher than leather.
