Witch's butter (Tremella mesenterica) is a very interesting jelly fungus found most frequently on recently dead wood in wet habitats, such as this one found on a wet winter day in Kent, Washington next to Soos Creek. Considered edible but flavorless, I can't imagine being the person who would be the first to try this slimy and slippery fungus in the first place!
