IN person these caps looked very much like polished and stained wood of some sort. They looked like fake mushrooms someone had manufactured.

Very nice.

It’s the same specimen from two angles. No flash, just long exposure.

Let me see if I can check my originals I may have tweaked contrast more in one of them!

Do the two images depict the same specimen?

Just different lighting?

Very best,
