Fungus Stalactites

This tree appeared to be missing a substantial amount of its bark.  I went closer to look, because I have been surprised to find so little evidence of deer along the river.  Perhaps we’re spared that large rodent a bit longer.  But the missing bark was in fact a large biological growth of fungus or something.  It was two varieties, I think, with one growing in small shelves and the other like a hair brush, with many points all pointing down.
