eye for photographic detail. Those “subtle color variations” you refer to are shadows cast by the light source (sunlight in shade). The specimen was — don’t laugh - simply placed on a white paper plate, portions of which can be seen in the third image. In the fourth image the specimen itself cast a slight shadow in the lower left corner of the image. The rim of the plate cast a slightly bluer shadow in the upper right corner. I recall that you and I and other Users on MO have had discussions in the past about the enormous affect light has - good and bad, intentional and unintentional — on our photographs.

Interesting picture

Can I ask what you used as a background on the fourth picture of your observation. I like the very subtle color changes.
