Gold drops

They look yellow to me. Green natural light is transmitted through some of the droplets in the first photo, but in the second photo you can see the liquid is pale yellow.

It would be fun to find out what the pigment is.

apparently it related to oaks we have oaks here so why he is almost inexistant here?

on the pore surface when young and fresh. The green in Dan’s photo is a reflection of the vegetation around the mushroom picked up by either the flash, the exposure or the photo editing?

what is UP with those green droplets?

I envy you the brightly-colored boletes you get in your area.

I mostly just get drab brown/yellow ones. Purples and reds? No way!
