Baby pine cone

This caught my eye in the driveway. A baby pine cone must have blown off in yesterday’s wind.
It was about 15 mm (1/2″). So pretty. 

Closer yet.

I wonder how far this fluffy down feather got blown yesterday?

Leaf beetle (Chrysolina auripennis) was a surprising find today. Host plants for it are Beebalm (Monarda) species and Mountain Mint ( Pycnanthemum tenuifolium).

Keep looking!
