Nature always has a way of protecting the things that are vulnerable. In this instance the soft, fuzzy, growing pine seed/cone is protected by the sharp needles of the tree keeping away animals that may want to eat it.
This is a photo I took of fir needles that had turned a lovely burnt orange colour last Autumn. I think the vibrancy of colour and the small details of these pine trees really make for an interesting image
I think the needles (or leaves?) on this fir tree create a really interesting pattern, and it’s amazing to think that these tiny little needles make up a whole tree
