Is it perhaps a type of bracken fungus?

Hmm, I've never heard of that, but it appears it probably is.

That looks like the common Turkey Tail Polypore, Trametes versicolor.

No, sorry. Dan took the pictures when they took a stroll through the woods.

Hi Arlene. It certainly does look like a Trametes fungi, and I agree it looks a lot like the Trametes versicolor, or a close relative. This is one of my favorite go to links for finding out about fungi.
