Oak galls on bur oak leaf (<em>Quercus macrocarpa</em>)

Oak galls on bur oak leaf (Quercus macrocarpa)

These galls are made by a tiny Cynipid wasp. The wasps are almost too small to see with the naked eye!

Really nice, Christine. I love your natural history lesson as well. Is that a moss or lichen under the leaf?
