That certainly is a good name for it. Does look like a turkey's tail.

This wet weather certainly makes fungi grow.

What an apt name! Are they edible or would they taste like feathers?

I can surely say that I've seen enough honest to goodness turkey tails out my window that this does indeed look like turkey tails!
Nice shot!

This really does remind one of a turkey tail. And it is quite beautiful. You did an excellent job taking this picture, Tom.

The turkey was an American bird and unknown in Europe. I wonder what it was called before people saw the first turkeys?

Surely it had a different name. Time to do some research, Tom.

Polyporus versicolor was its latin name before we knew the turkey.
