Hen of the Woods (Maitake)

Photo of hen of the woods, large round mass of grayish mushrooms

Looking like a ruffled chicken, this edible mushroom grows like large circular bouquet of spoon-shaped caps, each grayish brown on top and white beneath, emerging from a branching, whitish base. It grows on the ground at the base of oak trees.
