Optimization varies

Fungal specimen at unknown scale (snail is probably less than 1 cm across).

What is “optimum�? depends on time scale. Maybe not all the time, but most of the time.

For example, what’s the optimum time to go leaf peeping in north Georgia? That is, is “time�? an hour, day, weekend, week, month? The answer’s different every time.
