While we are waiting to clear up our technical difficulties receiving images, Daniel is spending some extra time in the yard. He noticed this Oak Gall several days ago. It is growing on a California Live Oak tree Daniel started from an acorn in 2000 that is now over 20 feet high and it has begun producing acorns. We have always been intrigued that Alfred Kinsey began his career as an entomologist who studied Cynipid Gall Wasps, and that he collected well over a million specimens, and that he transferred that obsession to the data collecting methods that eventually produced the Kinsey studies on human sexuality.
