In my yard while shooting the Oregon Grape, I saw this little one-inch wide device hanging on a bushes' branch. I thought it looked spider-like, or perhaps even alien, but was most puzzled with how it got attached.
Interesting, it must have been there from very early on.

It definitely looks alien-like Don! Well spotted and captured.

Don, very curious. What material is it made of -- rubber, metal?
11 May 2010 9:58am
I would think of spider if I saw it :)) Cool , silly shot :)) Happy ST :)

Extraordinaire compo .
11 May 2010 12:55pm
i wonder what it is for
11 May 2010 12:56pm
Au fait .. tu as parlé de mahonia ? ... Lol... ))))
Very interesting! What is it? is the first question. And, indeed, how did it get there?
The juxtaposition of the new leaf and the iron is nice too.

@Wim van der Meij: I had the same question when I first saw it. I have no idea what it was supposed to do.
Terrific selective focus. Happy ST!

Such a cool shot does look like some sort of spider, it is intriguing how it got there as it looks solid maybe the tree grew up through it

Beautifully composed image, Don. I like that tender shoot coming forth.

One of the strangest things I have ever seen. Is it a flower or and "Animal"??
11 May 2010 4:12pm
Funny flower !
11 May 2010 6:52pm
it's very weird and unique, does look like a spider upon first glance.. i just wonder how it got on that branch!
11 May 2010 8:57pm
fun. looks like a fake spider, maybe one you'd put on your finger.
11 May 2010 9:26pm
Excellent dètail :)
11 May 2010 9:58pm
Wondering what it is for too! Could it be a spacer of some kind? Was it plastic or metal? Nice details :)
11 May 2010 10:23pm
terrific capture! i love how vibrant the green is in the bud. so lovely :)
11 May 2010 11:20pm
Gotta say this is QUITE curious.....would love to know what it is, and how it got there......Great shot of it, whatever it is !!!
11 May 2010 11:37pm
Those alien critters can grow that attachment at will. Or, so I've heard. A cool and funny shot.
11 May 2010 11:59pm
Very interesting capture !

The invasion has begun.

Had to look twice to determine it was not alive. Looks like something that might be wrapped around someone's face in an episode of X-Files. Nice DoF in this one too.

I suppose this is just by chance, part of a child's toy?
12 May 2010 9:26pm
you got me there.. when looking at the thumbnail, i thought you encountered a tarantula.. :D nice find!
12 May 2010 9:51pm
Hmmm, maybe someone's alien implant fell out. It is peculiar!

Looks like a spider hanging upside down...sort of.
