Fun wildlife

Anyone know what on earth the first picture is? I spotted it and several others just hanging from a cedar tree and it's about two inches in diameter. The orange medusa hairs are soft like mushrooms, so I'm guessing it's a type of fungus? I love it when this world presents such alien yet beautiful organisms. Gives me just a moment to feel like a speck of dust and as large as the sky at the same time.

It's cedar-apple rust, a fungus.
