Winter or Spring?

This beauty caught my eye the other day. In the midst of chipping away at the ice, I glanced up to see what looked like a blossom clinging to a branch. The color was surprising in the winter landscape and it really stood out against a brilliant blue sky. I pointed it out to Chuck and he speculated it was a tree fungus. Does anyone know exactly what kind?

It looks like a mushroom, a very delicate one.

Hi Gail -
It looks like it was carved from paper thin wood shavings.

Hi DMM -
Yes they are beautiful and there are so many varieties.
