    I am new to all of this, and trying to learn. I live in Morgan Hill California and took this picture today. Curious if it is witches butter or something else

    Greetings Greg4545 - Lovely find!
    Yes you are correct it is witches butter, and that name is applied to a few different kinds of jelly fungi with similar appearance.
    If this was on hardwood it would likely be Tremella mesenterica and if it was on conifer, likely Dacrymyces chrysospermus.
    cheers,
