A Bolete Of Some Sort.

A Bolete is a fungus that is characterized by the fact that it has pores rather than gills on its underside.  This particular one has a cool orange color and it comes back on this same log every year.

Penny called me yesterday and told me there was a blob attacking her cedar tree.  She wanted me to come take a picture and try to figure out what it was.  After a quick google search for “slimy orange balls on a cedar tree” this is what I came up with.
