Small, occasional life in the forest

Yesterday in the park, I noticed this jelly fungus sprouting on a fence.  It was hard not to see the bright orange on the old fence, and I saw it on a couple of logs as well.

Apparently conditions were just right for a bit of sporulation.

I guess it’s not really ‘occasional life in the forest’. The fungus would be there all year. What I noticed was the fruiting body; the rest of it is feeding inside the wood.
