large yellow gall
This gall was rather strange as it was connected to another
smaller gall.  I'd love to know what made these honkers
because I've never seen anything like them before. I'd like
to see if I could find this sunflower again this spring (2020)
 but we've been told not to travel to parks outside our county
 because of the Covid-19 virus. © Carol D
