I don’t know why. I don’t know when it happened. But I have been fascinated with these things for as long as I can remember.
Evidently they come off the oak trees and are caused by a fungus or other stress. I see just a few every Spring. They make me smile.
And of course to get the picture I had to lay prone on my driveway, camera to my face.
Thank goodness the neighbors are used to my odd photographic behavior.
