One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

I don't know what this is, well I know it's a fungus, but I like the color
And the nasty way its oozing out of this rotten bark. While cleaning up storm broken Camellias we found a few branches shed from the canopy, long dead but newly fallen. I like the idea of fungi growing in dead branches 50 feet or more in the air, though I'm sure that at least some of the time they bear some responsibility for the death of the limb.
