Yeah, that’s a possibility.

Induced color variation… Sometimes the camera seems to want to add color. I snap 6-8 photos at basically the same distance, maybe re-position a bit to change the light, and I end up with three red dominated and three yellow dominated photos. If I bring some material home, I can usually choose a couple photos that seem to be closest to true color. Or I may judge from memory that there’s way too much of one color in a given photo. Less common is too much green, and I think this is most often due to the influence of the forest canopy.

Look at the differences in color between the second and third photos here. I think the third is probably closest to true, but there may be a touch too much red in this one.

But I’ve got to admit, Phil, the green on my hand looks a bit blotchy. So maybe I had just pressed my hand against some moss.

Don’t know

anything about camera induced color variation but I would venture to say that you may have acquired some vegetation induced coloration in the process of picking mushrooms and/or resting your hands on green vegetation.

Actually, this didn’t occur to me, Phil.

The appearance of green blotches on my hand seemed to point toward a camera-induced color deviation. But I agree that the green on the stipe bases possibly had something to do with the substrate.

Have you

Thought about the substrate causing the green coloration. i.e. chlorophyll leaching from grasses and or moss. Mo obs. 172234 and 433574 as examples.

Ha! I had not noticed the green.

Like Christian suggests, the camera appears to have decided there should be lots of green in those two photos. Although I no longer have the mushrooms to view, I assure you that my hand is not covered in green blotches.

Lighting seems to contribute to photo-color deviations. Or, maybe lots of green reflecting from overhead canopy.

Probably not

the whole hand looks pretty green.
Probably just color distortion from in-camera settings

Green mycelium?

Looks that way on my screen…
