Bobbing Along

One thing about trees having no leaves at this time of year - you can manage the occasional bird photo. This was not taken with my camera (it has a poor zoom) - the scarlet robin (male) stayed in one place for quite some time. No mate in sight, but his red chest was so stunning among the winter grey trees that she may just have been overshadowed.

Winter and Spring

After more rain, there is some amazing lichen and moss around. The moss is a brilliant green, the lichen very beautiful up close.
And the first flowers emerge.

What Is This?

I know what these are!

It's this that I am curious about, This white stuff was about five inches across, and felt quite thick and spongy.
Is it a fungus of some kind?
