Tremella Mesenterica (Sporing?)

On December 24th I took this shot: www.flickr.com/photos/nontent/4215934399/in/set-721576229... of a tremella mesenterica (witches butter) mushroom. Today I was on the same trail and was able to catch a glimpse of it covered in who knows what. Spores, perhaps?

 

View full size for some insanely strange looking mushroom action!

 

For reference those little spore (?) guys were minuscule - I thought they were tiny drops of water when I spotted 'em initially. I'm glad I took a closer look - does anyone have any idea what's going on here?
