Thanks for info that this is not a slime mold. I've changed it's category to fungus.

I believe I found the ID for our spottings, check it out and let me know what you think The video is kind of interesting, they give the scientific name in the title.

Very cool, Jean!

I don't know what this slime mold was growing on - at first I thought it was a clump of dog hair but then realized it was some kind of mold.
