Anna: I was originally going to post the un-cropped photo of the last mystery photo, but it occurred to me that it wouldn't make any difference, since it was really just more of the same. So, I am instead posting this version.
We had a wind storm a few days back. In the ravine we were walking in, a few trees were downed - no mean feat, considering how sheltered that ravine is! We also came upon the remains of a wasp's nest, which my elder daughter brought home a small piece of. She held on to it so I could get a few macro photos.
I've always found the stripey pattern and colours of these quite interesting. It makes me wonder what different trees the masticated fibres came from.
