Werid fungus?

I have seen something super weird outside in the bark and one of my garden beds in the last few days.  Some weird fungus perhaps?  At first when I saw it, it looked just like a bright sunflower yellow dusting like some pollen.

Before Fungus

But that night around 1 am when I was outside checking on the goats, I noticed it again.  It had changed.  Greatly!!  It had swelled up over 4 times its original size, puffed up big like yeasty dough rising and swelled.  Creepy.  The next morning I was curious and looking at it as again I was stunned by the changes.

After Fungus

It was still a bit puffy but not as big as during the night.  It dried out, turned a pale beige color and looked all crusty.  I had two spots in the driveway.

Two days later, I noticed another small dusting on one of the pine logs in the wood pile.  I checked it out last night again in the dark around midnight and it was swelling to huge sizes again and still that brilliant yellow.  And now….you guessed it.  EWWWW!!  Creepy.
