Coloured Roots.

When I originally unearthed this specimen and also during photographing I did not see or notice the coloured roots till Post Processing. I went to other shots of the same find and ALL showed the colour. At first I thought it was a Post Processing glitch. I also found an Entoloma close by. The only other explanation could be a chemical change when exposed to the open air.
Challenging…………… kk

Looks like a stinkhorn egg, Ian.
