|Please help me identify this growing in my yard. While fascinating , it also looks very creepy. When touched with anything the red jewel like spots drip like blood. Is it poisonous?

|Its called Bleeding Tooth Fungus and yes, creepy.
Edited to add: No, not poisonous but not edible. They are extremely rare infact, I didn't know they existed anyplace but the drippy forests of the Pacific Northwest.

|Whoa! I'd never heard of that one, either! Thanks for posting (and thanks Daisy for the ID).
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
