Yeah that's better. Good one. I'm not sure about the Trametes. Have a look at Stereum ostrea and see what you think. The Trametes are a bit thicker and softer and tend to stay flat. S.ostrea is thin and more papery and often stands up like your pic 1. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/139...

Hi Jason. You have admitted the colours are wrong here 2 weeks ago. Please upload the correct images. There is no point in deliberately perpetuating misinformation - that is not what Project Noah is about. If you can't do it then the spotting will be removed. Thanks.

I also agree with LarsKorb and Jolly Ibañez. Too much saturation !

LarsKorb

Exactly - this is what happens if you catch greytones of mist or humidity with a slight blue tone - you saturate over 40%, you'll receive a clear and bright blue like this. What's sad, because all the other colors are tweaked just for attraction - and what looks like biolumniscence of the green is most likely nothing much mor than an alga. The orange is no orange, but a rusty red....and so on...

I agree with Lars. Look at the color of the wood. It already turned blue.

Those colors are more the result of intense saturation on the photo, I'd say...

It would be great to know what size this is and what kind of timber it's on.?

Never seen colours like these before of fungi. Looks a little thin and papery for Trametes so might be a Stereum of some kind.... but again... those colours.. incredible !!
