Amazingly detailed seed 'conkers', outlined against golden autumn leaves, on the Liquidambar tree in our front garden... Captured mid-afternoon, in late autumn, on the 23rd of May 2011...

Oh my a huge OMG from me!. What interesting little seed pods with so much detail and texture. I think these should be Christmas ornaments. Love the trio and your DOF. This is a stellar image Carolyn. I want to come and visit your neck of the woods. #9458598

Ahhhhh....next season's growth...so beautifully captured, Carolyn!!!

There is a tree in our 'cul-de-sac' that produces a similar pod...but the pod has no 'spides'.

I am doing better...still have an ache in my left leg. It will mend...just needs time. And...I see the retina specialist a week from Friday.

HUGS to you, Phil and Chocky!!

Lucky says RUFF!!<:))

George has a toothache. He has a dental appointment today...11:15. I do hope the tooth can be saved. #9459810
