What would you do???????

After filling a basket with some nice hens, i come across this.

You seasond hunters know what these mushrooms are.

For the beginner, this is what we have:
The orange shroom is the "Jack O'Lantern" Omphalotus olearius.
The other one is the "Hen of the woods" Grifola frondosa. Choice

Due to the fact that a lot of spore deposit was on the hen from the Jack O'Lantern,guess what ?????. It's still out in the woods,not going to chance it.

14 lbs. of good stuff

How is it that one careless match can start a forest fire,but it takes a whole box to start a campfire??

Shure looks tasty, but i'm glad you did not take a chance & eat it. Great pictures!
I just ate the last of my hens from last year yesterday and today. Never seen them
growing so close to other shrooms like in your pix.
