Got another Blak Ray today. Looking forward to tripping over 2 cords now. Maybe I should set up a place indoors and bring the specimens to me. Not quite the same but might get better images.

Update on White Balance problem I was having with the Canon SX50. I could not for the life of me get the WB set for my LED. Tried custom with white card and lots of other stuff I read. Anyway, I set it to "flash" mode in one of the offered settings and the pics come out just right. Oh well who cares as long as it works.

This purplish mushroom is many times slimy on the top of the cap. Under UV at night this pair glowed unlike anything I have encountered so far.

Another angle--
