Wild Wednesday, Dryad's Saddle Mushroom

I didn't expect to be writing about mushrooms as much as I have, but nature keeps presenting such beautiful specimens this fall. We took the goats and Ceddie for a walk in the woods this weekend to find saplings to transplant and we came across this beautiful clump of mushrooms.

 I believe they are Dryad's Saddle Mushroom. The largest one was over a foot in length. This area of the woods is always damp. It's a low spot and in the spring it floods and forms a small pond that lasts until the hot weather comes.

These were growing just under on a tree that had fallen. They look like they may be just a white shelf mushroom, maybe an Oyster Fungus?
