I think this is the fungus that stains wood a lovely turquoise blue. In years gone by, furniture made of this bluish wood was highly sought after. Here's a very informative article:

Thanks Agustín Amenabar!!! I have a lot of bad photos of these too. Finally got a good shot with a tripod.

Beautiful colouring! I've seen some similar, but never managed to capture it right.
