In this fascinating closeup, we see hundreds of ‘little brown mushrooms‘ covering a tree. Some see little umbrellas, some only see the dying/decaying one in the middle; and many, apparently, are simply repulsed by such a large amount of fungi in one place.
Lactarius indigo, commonly known as the indigo milk cap, the indigo (or blue) Lactarius, or the blue milk mushroom, is a species of fungus in the Russulaceae family of mushrooms. A widely distributed species, it grows naturally in eastern North America, East Asia, and Central America; it has also been reported from southern France.
