Why not? I'm a fungi!

One of the cedar trees in my yard died and had to be cut down. Near where the tree fell is now full of fungus - all different sizes and types I've never seen before.






I don't care for edible mushrooms so I'm really not going to know non-edible types. Can anyone identify these for me?

I had a lot of "help" when I was taking these photos...

Spud, the rescue kitty, has been made of velcro lately. And here he is trying to see what I was bending down to photograph. He was very puzzled by the whole thing but loved to bat at my dangling lens cap and rub (ie bump) on my arm just as I was about to press the shutter button.

And my real velcro cat, my little white shadow, was none too pleased that he was so close to me and she wasn't.


Death glare.

Ah, cats.

NO help on the fungi identification either.
When we cut down some of our fir trees, the same thing happened.

Once again, you have impressed me with the clearest, crispest photos I've seen in a long time. I just love your photography! You should make postcards or cards from your masterpieces!
