I’m heading out now for a quickie I’ll see if I an gather another sample.

Can anyone explain this to me?

The expelled gas/spores are delayed about .5se after they get blown on, they are quite obviously waiting for a strong breeze to spread their spores. Or something?
Anybody seen this before?

Are you saving this? I’d love to scope it if you can’t.
