Amazing! Thanks for getting the before and after photos. Incredible how much slimes change in just a few days. I think you may have the only shots on the web of this lovely thing while immature. Certainly some of the best!

Very nice find and photos!

If they were liquidy and melty on contact, Myxomycota.

If they were brittle, Clavaria vermicularis or a close relative

Else, a Tremellodendron.
