Weekly Photo Challenge: EDGE

The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is EDGE.

Are these Turkey Tail mushrooms (Coriolus versicolor) growing on a dead stump in my woods? They certainly have a nice edge on them. I would welcome a proper identification.

  1. Beautiful! I’m a big fan of fungi and this is a great “edge” interpretation.

    would ‘edgy mushroom’ be proper? 🙂 this is truly a beautiful photo.

    I am not up on mushroomology, but the common name seems most apt and they certainly fit the theme.

    I get the feeling that if they are attractive, as yours, they are inedible. Fungi for sure, but not the ones in my risotto 🙂

    I don’t pick mushrooms out of the woods and eat them. It’s just not worth the risk.

    Funny that we both chose mushrooms of all things for this week’s photo:-).
