Chicken of the woods

Our last full day in Cape Town. We will be back in Brooklyn by mid week. And what better note to leave on than one that spells m.u.s.h.r.o.o.m.s?

It's a nice story, especially as we seem to have lived to tell the tale. Vincent and my mom discovered these delicious things while they were on a chameleon hunt this morning. Two local mushrooms books, much Googling, many emails to Ellen later, and we were pretty sure that we had Laetiporous cinncinnatus or L. sulphureus growing near to home. No poisonous lookalikes. Here Vince poses with shy Ted, when they took me back to see the wonderful fungus. The rest of the story must wait.

This is the last post from Cape Town for a while. We are inbound.
