Pods? Worms? You make the call...

These have been popping up on the LR. Look like pods or maybe early stage worm tubes, but being new at this FOWLR thing, I'm only guessing.

"Tubes" are maybe 1/8" in length and are mostly clear.

Picture to help....



You help appreciated...

I thought so too, but haven't seen any fans (althought I haven't snuck up on them in the wee hours) and they appear "fuzzy" rather than a well defined, single tube.

Here's a bigger pic just in case it adds clarity...



Thanks for your thoughts,

Tim

my kingdom for a few more mega-pixels and a fast "shutter" CCD!

A bunch of encrusting sponges have taken up residence...perhaps you are right and these are cousins of some variety. There goes the neighborhood!

I'll work on improved pics and repost (maybe I'll get an X-Mas present early?!?!?)
Thanks for your help

Tim
