Notes:

Found these on what I believe to be a Spicebush tree out behind my fence…re they some sort of fungus or an insect stage?

    Here we go. Climbing way out on a limb to guess this may be a butterfly chrysalis. I thought a natural would be the swallowtail chrysalis but, all photos I found of them had them attached to stems not leaves. Ok Stone you can jump in with a crow dinner anytime now. Anyway I did find a shot with a chrysalis attached to a leaf and there is some resemblance. Any flutterby experts out there?

    Thanks, but I think I narrowed it down to leaf Galls, specifically the Eriophyes tiliae mite…

    So now we know!I thought the connecting points looked like gall as well. Nevertheless Screamin Scott, you serve an excellent crow with just the right touch of garlic!
