Mystery plant du jour

Here is the latest mystery plant from Terry's daily walk. He thinks it is possibly a fungus, because it appears to be growing on a dead bush. Dennis, Sand, anyone - can you identify it?

Meanwhile, on the home front, progress is continuing on the Soldier Sock. I only knit on it at KnitWits, but it is coming along nicely. The cuff is about 4 inches long now.

My vote is for fungus. I realize that's a broad generality, but I haven't studied up on my funguses in recent years.

I only can guess. First I would guess a slime mold, otherwise I would say a fungus.

Thanks, guys. As I always do in these cases, I proceeded immediately to Google Images, where a search on slime mold returns many stunning pictures and descriptions. Yum.
