Yeah, but I want more…

Yeah, I know about downloads and such, but I’m just a detail whore, I always want more…

You can trim these photos, and that will reduce size, I mean you don’t need all the denim in the image there, and then save the photo under a different jpeg compression number, and that will reduce size without losing much info. Like a 75% compression. Then you should have a photo not much larger in byte size than you have here, but much larger in pixels and amount of information displayed.

Anyway, I don’t really know the micro-details of these Mycenas that well, I keep meaning to give that a shot, but there are too many, and it kinda scares me a little… and I waste too much time on small brown spored guys to start in on small white spored guys. I should give it some try at some point, so I can learn the important taxonomic features at least, and the major sections of the genus.

I did not break the stipe. Any good microcharacters for haematopus?

as to size….it takes too long to load the giant photos. If you are doing a serious ID on something, i can always privately send you the biggest files, like with that galerina. even with the biggest files, can’t get MUCH more detail…

Did you check if the base bled?

Might be M. haematopus, I believe I’ve seen them turn grey like this when they get dry.

One question though, the full size images you post here, they are only about 1.7M pixels, I thought your camera there had more pixels then that. Sometimes I wish I had more detail there. Is there I a reason I only see these smaller images when I click through to the full sized image?
