Birch Cones

Friends, more macro work, tiny cones from a birch bush, Birch have both female cones and male polen sacs, and these  cones are about 1/2 inch long.  I brought them indoors and lit them with flash against a gold reflector.  I think the top one has a face in it, maybe the face of neptune with a beard.  Getting hard to find something to photograph outside, with 16 inches of new snow, the contrast is non-existent, oh well, maybe Tomorrow MJ

  1. I learned something – I didn’t know about white pine pine cones. What an educational blog as well as beautiful.
