The pictures are very good and helpful in diagnosis of this mushroom, Ron.

The color of the universal veil on the cap and the way it fades, the pink underside to the partial veil, the general form of the mushroom, and the habitat with pine all suggest Amanita roseitincta (Murrill) Murrill.

Very best,
