they are a bit fuzzy, but I’m just casting these out for any proposal. I have a tripod, but I have too much to carry as is. Sometimes I do bring some home and pose them on my patio wall and then use the timer on my camera, but I prefer to take photos when they are found, but when we find too many species I tire from bending, stooping or lying down and I shake too much. Thinking about taking a bean bag with me. More weight to carry.

The “Tylopilus” proposal…

is not only because of the limited perspective provided by the photos. It’s also because the purplish-capped bitter Tylos are very difficult to ID once the colors fade.

An alternative to cropping photos… If you are willing to harvest a specimen, then find a place to pose it well above ground level so that you can more easily utilize the macro feature of the camera. That is, you can hold your camera closer to the subject(s) without needing to get down onto the ground, and comfortably snap multiple photos.

these were all found together with other obs, but the images don’t really show the true colors, which is why I separated these photos. I have more on the same date/location. Tried cropping but not too good.
