I’m sorry about the bulb picture.

It reminds of the film days when I’d take a flash picture with the wrong time setting and get a nice picture of exactly half a mushroom with the shutter making the other half of the image black. Groan. I lost my only chance for a photograph of A. subcaligata to such an incident.
