Otzeniana in a bad state... or not?

My Lithops otzeniana were not looking their best for this photoshoot. I had watered them before this and still they looked like they were about to die.

But this is again one of those moments where new Lithops parents would panic but the older and wiser ones stay calm because we know what's going on. ;)

And here we can see what's really happening: they're about to grow new leaves and the old ones are drying up around them.
