And got distracted by these beauties:
|Miniature lamps, the size of a small grain of sand. Slime mold fruiting bodies on stalks.|
|White specks, under a strong lens, turned out to be cup fungi.|
There is another slime on the wet wood, a few clumps of glassy spikes, visible to the naked eye only as a fuzzy white coating. The photos didn't turn out, and my battery is empty. I'll try to capture the spikes tomorrow.
(And now I need still another springtail; the one I found on the birdhouse is of a different species.)
