Raleigh only has one tree left? :P

Liz said...

Is it an acorn? It's a great close-up, love how the light is reflecting off it.

kenju said...

Okay, fess up. What kind of tree is it?

VALKYRIEN said...

That I like! Mystic - what is it? Please tell! :)

SandyCarlson said...

Green. I know that color. I saw it last about six months ago. Pleased to see it again!

So do you know what that lil ball is? I took some close ups of one once but never could figure out if they were a plant formation or a formation by a wasp or bug. Neat shot no matter. :)

Lori said...

Spring is on its way. Great shot. Happy WW:)

Awesome macro. I love close-up shots. The detail is just so fascinating. :-)

Robin said...

Gives you hope that spring is out there somewhere, doesn't it...

I like the way the sunlight glints among the shadow.

Lovely photo. Looks like the kind of grapes that my grandmother used to grow in South Carolina. MMmmmm

Shadow said...

it looks like it's growing a christmas bauble....

Nice! Very sharp.

Dora said...

The fruit looks like lime. ;p

June said...

I'm sure everyone in Raleigh is watching it too...looking for a sign that spring is near!

have a great ww.

Camera Totin' Idiot said...

Walnut, right? Great closeup

happilyretired said...

The fruit looked like a lime to me, but my trees here in So Cal have lotsa leaves too! I suppose it was some kind of nut though I really have no idea. Loved your Monochrome Monday shot too.
Hugs and blessings,

Carver said...

That's a beautiful shot. I love the color contrast.

Daryl said...

That is so neat ... almost looks as if its metal .. metallic ... shiny

Eaton Bennett said...

One lone little um...seed pod? :)

willt said...

Was it actually a fruit? It looks like you superglued a lime to the end of the branch!

Happy WW!

We have a winner here folks. The correct answer was supplied by Camera Totin' Idiot who correctly identified this tree as a walnut. Specifically it is a Black Walnut at least according to everything I've found by way of identification. The good folks at the US Forest Service have a site dedicated to tree identification so I was able to confirm CTI's answer.

Good job!
