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!

      Great set - but #1 is my favourite - they really are quite amazing - and thanks to karmankwarner I know what they are. See -photoblog is educational in many more ways than one - and wasn't it Lieutenant Horora(however her name was spelt) who brought the tribbles aboard?? And weren't they furry???? Sorry - getting really geeky now...

      These are actually "Sweet Gum Balls" from the Sweet Gum Tree. Beautiful Shots of these, and now I will NEVER look at a sweet gum ball the same way. :)
