What a neat shot! I don't have a clue why, but I just love pine cones. Maybe it's their shape, maybe its because I never saw one in nature until I was in my mid-20's. Nevertheless, I love 'em and this photo is wonderful.
Cute little pine cones--I find the variety of pine cones very interesting. The big cones on the Sugar Pines in our mountains are a foot long and are called "widow makers" for obvious reasons ;-) Of course most of the pines have smaller, more typical cones.
