    There's dead plant material or a rotting bit of wood there that the spores liked.

    Be a fungi! Enjoy your 'shrooms!

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Honey Fungus.

    It will attack even slightly weakened trees. Identified by the area around it having black boot strap mycelia. It is not your friend, but not your enemy either.
