It’s now a bitter 13 degrees Fahrenheit, but last week was warm and rainy, so I took my camera for a hike over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised to find some flourishing winter fungi.

and both growing on the same fallen branch. This was the same branch that had the yellow witches butter growing on it. I noticed the brown jelly when I accidentally touched it. Tremella seems reasonable.

2 different fungi, Dan.

I believe the upper photo is of Daldinia. The lower specimen appears to be a jelly fungus, perhaps Tremella that has been frost-damaged.
