Hen of the Woods

Hen of the Woods
Grifola frondosa is a polypore mushroom that grows in clusters at the base of trees, particularly oaks. The mushroom is commonly known among English speakers as hen of the woods, hen-of-the-woods, ram's head and sheep's head. It is typically found in late summer to early autumn. Quoted from Wikipedia

I didn't touch it, Amelia. I understand grifola frondosa is delicious when cooked with a little thyme. Cheers, Joe
