Turkey Tail fungi

This week my Flora and Fauna Friday post is the polypore mushroom Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor). Polypores are also known as bracket fungi.

When I photographed and captioned this specimen over 30 years ago the common English name was Many-zoned Polypore. That name seems to be less common than the name Turkey Tail nowadays.
