I think this is a Fomitopsis pinicola but i am not sure. Never saw such a formation. They all hang together and grow in one line. Now in spring there is more light to catch them, when the trees have no leaves.

Bonjour Pierre,
C'est presque l'échelle de Jacob! Etonnante vue sur cette formation rectiligne de champignons sur un tronc d'arbre. La netteté est excellente .
Un posting intéressant. J'ai vu derničrement pas mal de ces męmes champignons dans les foręts aux alentours de Berne.
Meilleures salutations

Hello Pierre,
This is great! I love these fungi and the formations even though somewhat similiar they have a nice subtle randomness to them. Your formation is one of the most extreme that I have seen. Well done on this really interesting capture. :)

Hi Pierre,
This is Fomitopsis pinicola without doubt, but what's the most interesting, I've never seen it's growing in such a cluster. Not only unique, but also very effective visually. Beautiful photo with perfect colors, sharpness and crop. Congrats and tfs.
Best regards from Hungary, László
