I think this is where bears do it.
Yeah, it’s an entirely bitchin’ tree fungus and it spins, but only very slowly. Don’t know what brand it is, but it’s on the north side of a tree somewhere in Cooper Mountain Nature Park, Beaverton Oregon.
Never eat this kind of found stuff unless you have a microscope and can positively identify the spores, and then don’t eat it anyway, even if you cook it. Some fungi can kill within an hour, others in painful hours or days, others do it silently without symptoms. You won’t know what happened until you wake up dead. [More here.]

Yeah, this got posted a day ahead of schedule. Posting a stupid cat pic and a stupid bird pic on the same day disrupts blog karma big time. Lo siento un poco.
