An observation in details...

Yea I know, just a weed right...

I am not sure what this plant is. I will do some research and see what I can find. The fuzzy green balls caught my attention and upon closer inspection I found little ants enjoying the sticky nectar. Click on the second photo to enlarge and you can clearly see the ants.





Just an observation...

We call this a Parafin Plant here Craig. I do not know another name for it but those pods on it are pretty.

Great and vibrant shots...look at the shade of green! Is this shot in all natural light?

The pods are they prickly?
mmm wonder why the ants are there? It may be a sweet plant...

Ok now I have to go look up Paraffin and Sugar Gum!

Thanks for the shout outs on the COMMENT for Cancer Contribution!

Muse,

Now I can't remember if I used a flash on the second picture or not??? hummm

If you click and enlarge you can really see the ants in the second photo. they were really crawing on the sticky gooy looking parts.

The pods had soft looking spines on them very odd I thought.

Thanks everyone for your visit and comments.
