For Your Consideration

 Okay, I didn't make it back when I promised...sorry about that.  The mystery item is a seed from American Mistletoe.  Congratulations to Tom for identifying it correctly in the comments!

A little something to ponder this Friday evening... I found this on a rain-soaked boardwalk in the swamp forest following a bit of a blow this morning. Do you know what it is? (And yes, I do know and I will tell you tomorrow.)



Okay, it's tomorrow.  So far no one has guessed the identity of my mystery item.  Would it help if I told you it came out of one of these?
See how much faith I have in you?  I'll be back tomorrow to give another clue or relent and post the answer.

Guessing Tulip Poplar bud? Or Sweet Bay bud?

Cool shot whatever it is.

Lovely reflection around whatever it is.
(Isn't it tomorrow yet?)

Nice. To me, that looks like the fruit of American Mistletoe. Believe it or not, it actually makes it all the way north into southern Ohio.

Good job, Tom! It is the fruit of American Mistletoe in all its sticky glory.

Ah! I would never have guessed that.

The desert mistletoe has a red berry. There's a bit of trivia for you.

Jenn,
I would like to see that someday. Red berries on mistletoe seems quite exotic ;)
