Chicken of the Woods Fungi?

We took a walk on our property in the woods and came across several areas where this fungi is growing.  We hadn't seen it before and might be due to all the rain we've had this year.

Searching on the internet, we think it's called "Chicken of the Woods" but not 100% sure on that.  The orange just seems to glow in the cover of the shade from all the trees.

Quick sketch in the Zeta journal first using the Pilot Prera with Lexy Gray ink; watercolor pencils, watercolor; and finished with a few touches of the Uniball 151 Brown Black.

Note to myself......I could have made this a little more lacy looking along the edges and darkened the center with more orange.
