The Green Lantern

Walnut in mid-September

No, it's not a superhero. It's just a walnut. A big fat one.

It's Super Walnut.

I took this photo a couple of weekends ago, after it had rained for 4 days in a row. Then the sun came out and everyone was happy. Especially all the squirrels. The nuts had been falling like crazy.

The squirrels are having a dancing good time partying because they now have their own pretty green disco ball. I love the effect.I want to learn how to do all of that stuff.

I always wonder how the squirrels open those... I know the outside is kind of soft, but how do they get through the shell?

Great shot, wonderful processsing!

I was taking some photos of the black walnuts on my mother's tree the other day. They look like green tennis balls hanging in the trees don't they? :)
