First 6 pics are most probably Trametes versicolor (common name: Turkey Tail).

Sporocaps attached to substrate along one side, fruitbodies shelf-like, fan-shaped, (20)30-80(100) mm broad, connected one with another, forming groups, rows, rosettes; 1-3 mm thick, thin, without any thicker; surface shortly tomentose and multicolour concentric zoned, silky shining, zones of different colour, back, steel-black, bluish, red, yellow, often green because of algae growing between hairs, after long wet period often black. Margin acute, wavy, always lighter, white or cream.
Pores white, darkening to cream and pale brown; minute, 3-5 per mm, round or angled and broken. Tubes 1-2 mm long, white to cream.
Flesh thin (0.5-1.5 mm), tough (also in young specimens); without any distinct taste or odour.

Spore print cream to pale yellow. Spores smooth, cylindrical, bent, hyaline, inamyloid, 6.5-7 x 1.5-2.5 ?m.

Very common. Sporocarps annual, whole year in rows and overlapping shelves, on dead branches, logs and stumps of deciduous trees, rarely conifers. Usually on dead wood, rarely on living trees.

Inedible, too tough. Causes white soft-rots.

The last two pics also resemble something along the Trametes species, maybe Trametes hirsuta or Trametes pubescens.
