Thanks. Look much better now.

Colour Correction— Images re-edited.

Daniel, Using different PC (back-up) and slightly different workflow. This PC is much slower than my main PC and I most likely didn’t let it finish Colour Sync.
These images should be right. My apologies. kk

may be two different species here. First two photo show gray or blue-gray fungus; last two photos show brown-red fungus. Important to have color corrected observation here.
