No, Sorry, my camera skills are not up to taking clever photos. I did try, but to no avail.

Your photos look beautifully clear!

Actually I can just see some underside at the top of the 2nd photo. For future reference the underside is important so if not a photo then a description (pores / gills / colour etc) would help.

Thanks Janet. I've now

Thanks Janet. I've now started using a notebook to jot down details when I spot something interesting, just in case I don't get to upload straight away!
