If you cut an indigo milkcap (Lactarius indigo), the mushroom will ooze a deep-blue milk that turns green when exposed to air.

L. indigo is one of the most common fungi used in traditional Mexican cuisine. The blue color disappears with cooking and the fungus becomes gray.

While climbing Mt. Fuji in 2012, photographer Kris J B managed to capture this crystal clear shot of the mountain’s shadow at sunrise.

Beautiful :)
