What an interesting looking specimen. Is it part of a flower?
No. This produced by the rose gall wasp ´Diplolepis rosae´.
Thanks very much for this information. I didn’t know this! How does a wasp produce this? Is it some sort of mutated plant growth?
This definitely goes on my hat! A beautiful spiky pom pom! Oh, wait, I just read that a wasp makes it. I think I’ll pass putting it on my hat. But it sure is interesting.
I think you should put it on you hat, Dezra. 😉
Fascinating. Something else I’ve never seen before.
