Hello, noob here. I found this on a backpacking adventure in mid July (About a week ago) in Central North Carolina. It looks delicious, thought not being an expert, I didn't and probably will not harvest or eat it. I am curious what it is and whether it has an look-a-likes or other things to be concerned with. Again, not going to eat it but I do think it is a shame that I don't know more about what I can and can't eat in the mushroom world, so unless I chicken out, wild mushrooms may be a new adventure. I tried looking it up and it looks to me like something akin to A Chicken of The woods but I have no idea what I am talking about. Also there were a ton of inch tall orange mushrooms I had no idea what were. They were super bright orange-red. Surely they looked like something Snow White would do best to avoid. Any info on the topic would be appreciated. Thank you.
