Natural Totem

According to Wikipedia, a totem “is a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serves as an emblem of a group of people, such as a family, clan, lineage, or tribe”.

Here is a natural Totem, an emblem of a group of fungi, the bracket fungi.  I am guessing they are polypores, but I may be wrong. It was a beautiful, but unexpected sight!
