Wolf Creek, Josephine County, Oregon, USA
September 9, 2009
Size: 1/16 inch
i placed these inside a baggie and with a soaked tp piece in the corner of the sack and sealed it up..so the leaf wouldnt dry out too soon and there they sit
in spite of that they are turning into little cups.
the little dodad in the center is raised up now and you can see its shadow in one of the galls not a bump but like straight up and down..wish i had a better camera.
