green balls of nature - #poliac 8, #poprzeczka 23

What is this green ball of something doing attached to the fallen leaf?

Is it a sort of symbiont or even a parasite?

It feels soft yet I didn't open it. Not curious enough :)


Here is another greenish ball. Can you guess what this is?


The day was nice to me. A morning run, long family doggy walk, an evening walk. The count is decent.

Recently I lost two #poliac matches by a small margin because I didn't bother to up the count. It's the same today since this is the second rest day for the #poprzeczka challenge. Tomorrow I'll need to cross the bar of 24 K!

Puma says good night and lovely Sunday to you all.


This @actifit report is a part of the great #poliac challenge organized by @browery and of #poprzeczka organized by @racibo.

In this ball is an egg of Cynips quercusfolii :) it is considered a parasite, but it actually doesn't do any damage to the tree, because the egg is on the leaf that just drops off. The egg itself is smaller. The oak (or apple tree) grows that ball around it.

Hey, thanks a lot for the explanation. You are a proper expert :)

Do I understand right that the oak in this case envelopes the parasite and that the sphere is actually this envelope? Next time I find this kind of egg I'll open it :)

Have a great Sunday.

Yes, you understood correctly :) yea I see a lot of these on our oaks, so I googled awhile back what it is. But usually they like smaller trees for some reason. Or maybe the big ones are too high to see :)
