Delicate Orange "flower" dangling from a dead branch.
I posted this photograph on Wild About Britain and got the following response:
"This is Phlebia radiata, it typically occurs on rotten Birch Stumps. The orange dangly bits are not out of the ordinary, but I do not know what purpose they serve."


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
