Photo Tuesday-Artsy Fartsy

I don’t know what these are.  I only know that they caught my eye and I had to get close and snap a photo.

some sort of buds or berries on a tree

I saw these on a trail.  The tree was covered in them.  Are they buds?  Are they berries?  I don’t know.

All I knew for sure was that I wanted to get a nice close up, which I did.  Hope you like it 🙂
