If part of the mission of this site is to help get positive identification on the fungus, sometimes that helps.

I havent started putting up my photos yet, but one of the things i was using with my pics is a gps so I could record the site and in some cases develop maps of certain species at certain nature centers.

Needless to say there is a gps in each pic, which does give size reference.

And no I didn’t gps any of my morel or chantrelle finds ;)

I would consider for use in an in-situ photograph are a coin or small ruler, but even these are really best suited for studio photography later on. it is, in the end, at the discretion of the observer, but many of us find the presence of foreign objects (particularly garbage) to be in bad taste.

This looks like the spruce loving fungus that came in as my spruce died. Interesting that there are spruce needles and cones (are those spruce or douglas fir cones) in the pic.

My favorite comment on the pic site myxomop has up is showing it in situ.

I also prefer seeing top, underside and stalk (including base).

I also prefer what can’t always be captured by the camera like odor, if the stem feels hard or brittle, and what was indicated in myxomops description, human comparison (ie jackknife, waterbottle, baseball cap, or ruler)
