STAR TREK "TRIBBLES"
I have NO idea what these are, but they reminded me of an old episode of "Star Trek" about the spiky little creatures, the Tribbles! There were thousands of them on the ground - and this one had fallen onto a metal picnic table and lodged itself. You can see that it was beginning to snow a little, so I didn't stay long.
No computer for the next several days - travelling with our grandkids!
