50/366: Ripening White Oak Acorn (+1 in a note)

50/366: Ripening White Oak Acorn (+1 in a note)
(1 more picture above in a note)

Until I moved to southern Oregon, it never occurred to me that acorns look different depending on the species of tree they come from. Our home is surrounded by mostly White Oaks with a few Black Oaks here and there. Once I saw each kind, it was totally obvious! This is a White Oak Acorn, and if you roll your mouse over the picture, you'll see what a Black Oak Acorn looks like (fully ripe and on the ground). I think both of them are really interesting with super textures to appreciate! I found this one in September 2013 while walking around on our property. :)

We don't have oaks, so I didn't even know there were different types! Lovely macros.
