Pore color?

In some pics the pores appear yellow, but in others they look orange. Were these photos taken inside? I suspect that indoor lighting threw off the color. Also, it looks like these were photographed at least an hour after being harvested. The reddish-brown stains likely started out as blue-stained areas and eventually changed to the reddish-brown.

The reddish-capped, yellow-fleshed, blue-stainiing boletes are a tricky group to ID. Dario, most of the ones you’ve recently posted initially bring B. sensibilis to my mind.
