Yes...!!

.... it is well known documented fact that caterpillars purchase parasols to protect them from the rain & sun.
This is just the last one left after an obviously busy day in caterpillar parasol retail.

[:D]..hee hee !!! nice !

It does look unusual though doesn't it ?...In all seriousness, I don't think I've seen anything like it too !......though fungi does grow on trees...we've all seen that at the base of a tree, but in this case the 'mushroom/toadstool/fungi ?' is clearly parasitic...

...great picture !

Sorry if I had known sooner I would have cut the branch off and posted it up in person so you could stick it in it.  [:D]

I'm not a mycologist but...

Your mushroom looks like Porcelain Fungus (Oudemansiella mucida):-

Porcelain fungus is very glossy (slimy) hence the name.

Porcelain Fungus

Objectively they seem rather different in many ways. But arenít they beautiful

i was wondering where i left my mushroom, ever since that turtle attacked me i havent been able to find it and i have been very small and cant run as fast.  I need it back so i grow bigger again. and then perhaps a feather.  LUIGIIIII.............
