I photoshopped the thumbnail image. I often make a 160×120 image for an observation’s thumbnail, if none of the other images would look very good/informative if downsampled to that size. Typically it’s a copy of a single other image of the fungus, cropped and down-rezzed, but in this case I combined parts of two images.

Don’t worry — I don’t doctor any images “dishonestly”, and the vast majority are completely unaltered. Only the thumbnails, and some of my earlier photos that needed retouching to bring out detail or color-correct before I got my camera technique down pat…

how did you do that split screen effect? i love it!
