has got a somewhat distorted growth, but I’m still sure you have the right name on it.
And better colours on the last picture ;-)

I try to avoid using the flash too, if I don’t have to..

Photo was taken in a shady spot.

I don’t like to use the flash as it generally produces even worse color changes. The fruit body is creamy white with no pink tones. Thanks for the input, Irene.

looks OK, except for the strange pink colour. Was the photo taken in late evening light?
