That's not an insignificant section that broke off...
Thankfully it was only lawn below, to cushion the fall.
Our original walk had us passing by after dusk, when I happened to walk that way again a few days later I was stunned to see all the turkey-tail fungus and moss. There was this ruffled group...
And the more "common" stacked version.
I don't think I've ever seen such a dense grouping of different types of fungus on one tree (or part of a tree) before.
On the other side is what appears to be another species of fungus, and more moss.
If you're thinking I must be scheming on a way to drag these pieces of the fallen tree home and put them in my garden you'd be right. Wish me luck, I'm going to need it.
