Douglas Fir Male Cones

Douglas Fir Male Cones
We discovered these last year and found out that they are the male cones of the Douglas Fir, Pseudotsuga menziesii. They are very short lived and soon disintegrate leaving the female cones, one of which is shown hanging down, to grow and remain on the tree. These male cones are usually a brighter red, but these were still holding water drops on a wet morning and I liked the photo for that reason. They were photographed on the Bowman Beach trail in Deception Pass State Park.

Male fir cones vs. female ones....
Well, good to know how to sex them. The silvicultural advisory foistered a few douglas firs on us although we wished for all native and mostly non-needle trees in our damaged plots for reforesting. No idea why they did so. Anyways so we will get now many douglas fir babies. Guess they will stay very g-rated and coneless for a while?

Quite beautiful.
You have a fine eye for catching the tiny, transient details that transform the ordinary into the outstanding.
