At first glance this appeared to be a squirrel clinging to the side of the tree. A closer look proved it was some growth on which bark had covered the bump

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    Poor thing has no tail! Must be a new species. Actually, galls are harvested for their swirled grain. Sliced into 2½" pieces, they are dried and covered with polyurethane to be turned into tables, chair seats, wall plaques, etc. I have seen a few hiking in the Berkshires. :-) Pete

  • you are a veritable encyclopedia of information!! Amazing, Pete. As for having seen a few hiking in the Berkshires, I seriously doubt it. They’re on the tree for ever!

    Well, Phil, you will just have to get out more often! Lol They are not always on a tree forever because the trees they are attached too are too big for most livingrooms. Geeze, I gotsta ‘splain everting t’ya! :-)
