"Chicken of the woods" found while hiking in Jackson County, West Virginia

"chicken of the woods" was an absolute delight to photograph, especially seeing the vibrant oranges and yellows contrasting to the dark oak wood that it was growing on. I was quite giddy with excitement when I stumbled upon this miniature ecosystem in the forest.
