Fairy Fingers

Fairy Fingers
These are the fungus, Clavaria vermicularis or Clavaria fragilis, or Fairy Fingers. Barely evident in this example the tips of the fungus are often colored yellow. These were photographed at Anderson Lake State Park on the Olympic Peninsula. It is edible but with little taste or substance.

I've seen these in Pack Forest, but I've either missed them this year, or they haven't emerged yet.
