Some of it is me, I’m afraid.

My blood sugar is not as well maintained as it might, and that is affecting my eyesight.

In this case, the second photo shows the pores of this fungus. Assume the first photo was placed against the end of the log. The second photo would then be jutting outward at a slight angle. The whole fungus was maybe 1/2 inch wide, 3/4 inch tall, and 3/4 of the fungus was buried underground. I know that sounds unlikely. But that’s how I found it.

your images are not clear enough or of a high enough resolution to discern the arrangement of the hymenium. try using flash or a tripod.
