Oddities

 

Just sharing another peculiar phenomenon - I found this in our lake (one of two). It's not living ... well, even if it were once, it doesn't stink for having been out of the water for a week. It looks like a collection of pine needles, all aligned together, with one end different from the other in shape.


I have no idea what it is that keeps it 'glued' together so it doesn't fall apart. The only thing I can find about it, is that it might be a lake ball ... but there's not much more than that to go on.



It looks a lot like a hedgehog to me. Or a coconut ...

I don’t know if my comment went through (again!) Ugh. Part of a beaver dam or a nest?

This one got through! Both things you mentioned are more woven, I think. They are a 'known' peculiarity, see here http://maineaquaticfieldguide.org/information

Whatever it is, it's pretty neat!

I know! And another puzzle to solve ...
