Robin's pincushion by julienne1

Robin's pincushion

...a much nicer name than Bedeguar Gall, which is what this malformation of the wild rose stem is. It's cause by a chemical reaction set off by a gall wasp laying her eggs in a leaf bud. The grubs develop inside and hatch out in spring.
the gall wasps fascinate me - I've seen one quite like this! great capture of the textures
