add a little flash and lookie here…
this photo and the other one were both taken late afternoon in fading light.

I preferred the quality of the natural light photo, but obviously it didn’t tell the whole story…

not such a great fit to vinaceorufescens either, with that dull yellow latex.

Lactarius sp., maybe?
