I'm 99% sure these are oysters. They look like oysters and smell like oysters but I don't want that 1% to make us sick.

It was growing on a very knobby tree. I thought it was an oak at first but then thought it was a willow. It was a dead tree with tons of character and lots of different mushrooms. You can see the cute cup fungi in the picture. Of course I had to blow on it and it didn't fail to delight with a puff of spores. Gawd I'm such a geek.

Spores are white. The poor mushrooms sure got beat up in my hen bag!
