This was growing on the bark of a fallen oak log.

blue Fuligo septica at this webpage. This was the only one I could find online.
the attachment was light blueish purple in hue probably from the purple masses that were intertwined and expanding. See image 3.
now that I’m seeing these images on a larger screen, I think white balance may be to blame. the backgrounds in most of these are conspicuously cool.
I’ve found four specimens of Fuligo septica and each is diffrent. I don’t know if there just variants or different species or at different points in their fruiting cycles.
If you want to see another blue slime mold check this out.
