Why do the blooms close back up and are they dying at that point

Colorful, open flowers attract pollinators but also call attention to the seed-head which critters might like to eat. So Calla lily blooms turn green and close in order to protect/camouflage developing seeds. Cutting the stems down to the base encourages more blooming.
