    The orange fungus is Calocera cornea. The other one could be Trametes versicolor.

    If the second one has tough gills on the underside, instead of either pores or a flat surface, then Gloeophyllum sepiarium. The habitat looks right for that mushroom.
    If a flat surface on the underside, then possibly a Steareum.

    Great Calocera in picture 1. The second one really should be Gloeophyllum sepiarium (the gilled polypore), as Frog suggested first.
