Exploring Central Ontario (CANADA)...and beyond
Wow, these are great. Isn't nature grand, when we keep our eyes open.
That looks like some kind of fancy ornament one could buy in a craft store.It's actually quite pretty.Hmm,I've got ideas floating around in my head.I'll have to watch for these plants next fall.
It looks like a delicate crochet ornament. Very pretty. Great image.
Indeed. Very pretty.
What a great view! I've never seen a wild cuke....I really am enthralled at how well you captured the ephemeral nature of its decay! Kudos!
Oh.. you know what, it's the first time I see a wild cucumber! :)
This is gorgeous, I've never seen anything like this before!!! It's almost like a paper lantern.
I see a crocheted ball filled with crumpledand torn tissue paper.
I thought it's an old old bee hive. Great capture!Macro Monday
It's a delicate beauty!
I have never seen one of these before, it so beautiful in it's dried state.
Great to leave them out for nature to recycle!
Wow, it looks like a pendant.
I've heard of wild actors but not wild cucumbers. Hmm. So, I'm ignorant. Stop laughing!Not only that but at first I thought the first picture was some kind of artsy chandelier! Seriously!Stop laughing!And yes, for some reason a bunch of zebras showed up at a local horse/cattle farm about four miles north of where we live. I dunno why or from where they came.
I really like this first macro. The dried cucumber is very lacy and delicate.
Very cool! I don't think I have ever seen one like this.
If I have it right, the lacey lump of dried cucumber, soaked in water, was used by my mother as brush for bathing before they took to soap in villages.
That is awesome when it dries.
What an amazing shot. I love that you've shown us the before and current.Teresa
If someone held a gun to mae and told me to name that thing, I guess I would be pushing daisies by now. I have never heard of, much less seen, a wild cucumber.
You lucky lucky people who have never had to deal with this stuff. The vines are very springy. I need a machete to get through!
Wow! That looks really cool!
Really interesting. I would have had no idea what this is! Is it edible?
Simple and beautiful. Even in death it is beautiful.
Dried stuffs can be pretty too!
Fantabulous!!! Nature is so wonderful and I am glad you have an eye to see it and then show us. Love it!! MB

You can use it as a Christmas decoration. I wanted to say it looks like our apple cucumber until I saw the prickles.
You've captured some terrific details!
yeah, that is naturally beautiful. We just have to look everywhere and beauty abounds around us!
Beautiful...nature...it can really make us stop and view it's artwork!!!My Macro Link: Sand Dollars and Sea Drift SeedsHope you can visit; have a glorious day!!
I don't think I ever knew what these were!
Interesting photo!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Wow love the textures! I thought it was some bug cocoon or something at first, so interesting that it is a wild veggie :)
Never heard of such a thing! Very interesting!
