You can get more depth of field by closing the aperture on your camera and letting the camera adjust shutter speed to the available light.

It’s great that you got a section of the attached button that shows the developing mushroom. Notice that the mushroom is developing in the upper part of the “egg.” All amanitas with a true bulb at the stem base develop this way. The development has progressed to a point at which the partial veil and gills are beginning to detach from the stem. In the original primordium, there would not be the little triangular spaces on the two sides of the stem. Look how thick the volva is above the cap at this stage of development. That’s real protection.
