On some autumn day, I discovered lots of oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus) right before sunset.

Lit by sun rays they are extremely attractive.

I did forage them for food.

I also hunted this huge so-called Tzar Oyster.

Watch the video to find out how much it does weigh.

I found some of these brown oysters late in november over here growing on a willow tree. They were the best tasting oysters I've ever had. I suspect the willow tree added a bit of sweetness to their taste.

How much did you gather?

It was roughly 2/3 of the patch you show growing on the tree in your photo. Only good enough for a couple meals. I turned them into stir fry with a bed of rice.

This evening I did photograph the local willow tree:

Are those dried oysters? Not looking similar to my knowledge.

My guess is that it is a northern tooth polypore. Or something related.
