I often find gooey blobs of stuff oozing out of the trunk of Black Cherry (Prunus serotina). Usually, there is just one blob here or there. Yesterday, I found a couple of trees that were oozing all over the place! Very strange. I’m not sure if they were living trees or dead.
When I got closer, I found one glob that had visitors – a seed on its parachute, and a bug… or maybe must the exoskeleton of a bug… You must click on this photo and go look at the larger version. It’s pretty cool. Reminded me of amber with ancient critters locked inside… But this one had escaped!
