Skeptical. If this were real, why only one strange leprechaun-green photo?

I have no clue to wether this picture is genuine or not... but the albino form of tigrinum is published as fma. smaragdinum (which epithet would fit the pictured flower to a 't'.

It's the same photo Popow has on his website. No idea wether it's his or not.
It is Popows plant...I have several photos from him with it in better quality, so it is I just don´t know why this photo is of such poor quality...I have attached the original photos of his plant, actually he has 2 different types of tigrinum album, which I have attached also

Absolutely amazing! Especially the first one.
Is it a smaragdianum? It is describes without any markings but in the photo I see some, but I'm not sure if green of different saturation is defined as "maculato or striato / spotted or striped" or not?

The first two photos look like tigrinum and yay, they are in focus. The latter 3 photos look like something else, hirsutissimum maybe.
