Dryad's Saddle

Being in the desert for the spring, summer and fall is a sad state of affairs, when you wake up to other peoples finds on your phone.  I got this text at 5am (AZ time) from Miss Kathleen, whose back east until Saturday...and nothing has shot me outta bed faster.  This is a Dryad's Saddle (Polyporus Squamosus) an edible polypore, at the perfect stage for picking and eating.  Some might say this isn't a very tasty mushroom, but given the right recipe, it is rather tasty!
