I never seem to find them in that stage. Maybe it is something that happens at night?

I just wanted to verify that. They are all good pictures! I still have not been able to photograph (or see) the intermediate stage where the little white balls begin to stretch out into long brown stems.

It is one observation

The pictures were just taken from opposite ends of the log. One end was in the mature state, one in the young stage of development.
