Please post more photos! This is interesting!

Try including something neutral in at least one image of many individual mushrooms, something grey, ideally, so we can have a kind of calibration reference for this blue color in the hymenium. Also, best to do this under natural daylight and against a more or less neutral background (sidewalk, picnic table, piece of wood, paper, etc.).
