Oak Apple

On this mornings walk i passed an Oak and there on one of the low branches was an Oak Apple,like yesterdays blip it is a bud that has been taken over by a Gall Wasp Larvae.This causes the bud to swell and distort into an Oak Apple.
One of my sons when young took an Oak Apple in for the nature table,only to have the little Gall Wasps emerge in the classroom.
