Orange-tipped white stalks with black bases growing out of tree stump. Possibly Xylaria hypoxylon.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
I have never seen them with that orange colour, I wonder if its a result of a rust or smutt fungi parasitising it. Where's Flaxton when you need him ;-)

Thanks for help with identification. You mention orange colour so I've added a third image of the tree stump showing orange on more of the stalks.
(Also not intended to double enter these images so now deleted duplicate submission.)
