Gills in the in situ image are illuminated with blue-spectrum diode light. I wish I had a source of illumination with a more balanced spectrum. Quantum-dot technology might soon produce a tunable-spectrum LED pocket light, but for now the blue white light is better than no light. The gills would have been in a dark shadow if I used no external light at all.

The middle image is illuminated with a mix of full sun (red-tinted because it was evening), blue diode light to fill in the shadows, and if I recall, a bit of flash for good measure.

The bottom image, which shows a hollow stipe, is illuminated with flash only.

This observation shows a little blackish Hygrocybe. The photos are beautiful; this does not diminish the observation’s scientific merit.

look pink to me
