Dr. Seuss-Looking Flower Found at Texas State Park

This thing looks like it was plucked straight out of ‘The Lorax’. 

Here you thought Dr. Seuss was all imagination. Maybe he just happened to catch one of these flowers in real life one day. Atlanta State Park, just west of Texarkana, shared this photo of a very unique flower. The flower is actually very common, the pink spots that appear are something that is not natural to the flower.

The flower is a wool sower gall, which also is known as the oak seed gall. It’s normally all white, but those little pink spots are actually eggs. The eggs are from a  wool sower wasp. So I would suggest not picking these things up if you ever happen to spot one. Don’t want to make mama wasp angry.
