Submitted by: dawittrock2231
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight on my deck. I don't shoot with a flash anymore, I use a variable beam flashlight for illumination. I think the color on the pinus was just an artifact of it being a worn individual, I think it was relatively true to reality.
