Not sure I think it is a lobster that hasn't turned yet
Lobster mushrooms do not turn. They do however have host species that get infected by Hypomyces lactifluouorum. You may want to do some reading on the subject. This link is a good start

It's a fascinating species and if you find them in your area you are very lucky to have them. Unfortunately they don't grow in my part of southern Michigan. I enjoy their texture. They seem to hold up to all kinds of cooking and never turn to mush.

My chanterelles are growing quite nicely up here. I'm surprised yours are in the same stage of growth. I thought you would be finding huge old ones by now.

I'm also finding black trumpets. That's a new early record for me.
