What is the jelly found on my outdoor pots, clear, segmented stuff sometimes copper tinted- established pots?

Came out after days of rains (about 1 inch) mid 40 degree farenheit, to mysterious chunky piles of gel in my pots! Thought it was an animal, have deer and rabbit evidence, but some of the pots are unreachable, no damage to plants. Not dissolving after two days. Not related to new plantings. Fungus? Chemicals from the air? Birds? Thanks, gardeners!
