Electric Blue Mold or Lichen?
The other day I went up in the woods looking for kindling for the woodstove and found this small poplar log (about 4 inches in diameter). When I turned it over, I was surprised to see this brightly-colored blue mold.
Here's another view of the log. Not sure if it's a lichen, algae or mold.
And another close up showing some other lichen and white mold.
Maybe there are some fungi experts out there who can help identify it. For now, I will enjoy the lovely color.
