First picture looks more like a Stereum…

Without seeing the under surface of the larger caps it’s hard to be certain, but they look a bit thin for Trametes and there are clearly other Stereum on the branch. The key difference is the color and form of the under surface. If it is orange and smooth, then it’s Stereum. If it is white and has small pores, then it’s Trametes.

The second photo looks more like Trametes to me, but again it’s hard to tell without seeing the underside. Also unless you have a really strong reason to believe that two photos are from the same individual (e.g., same log, same fairy ring, exact same location as a previous season etc.), you should put in separate observations.
