Default Leftover krausen or infection?

I'm thinking this is only some leftover krausen but it looks kind of weird so I figured I'd just ask. I'm racking to my bottling bucket anyway. I took a sample and it tastes fine

Looks like clomps of krausen, nothing to worry about if it tastes fine.

Yep, looks fine. What's up with the foam on your autosiphon though? Is that StarSan? Be careful not to aerate at this stage.

I was terrified by the year-old squash you had in there until I realized it is probably just a hop bag.

I just had a beer that looked just like that. Actually the leftover krausen was thicker and more widespread. I assumed it was fine and racked from underneath. I'll let you know if I die later.
