Here is the same patch I have been photo’ing for a month here. But this day I get to claim hard-guy macho points for mushrooming in freezing weather, and they were covered with a deep layer of frost.
(Either that or claim uber-geek stupid points… not sure which…)

The ice crystals around the opening are all pointing away from the hole. Hardly a single one blocks the opening. Also, they appear to be uniform in both length and diameter. Stunning photo!
