Apologies for the focus, still getting used to this hand lens photo technique
Q. petraea on left, Q. robur on right
Description:

Nice chance to see Sessile Oak - Quercus petraea - for us southerners.
Looks a lot like "normal" or Pedunculate Oak (Q. robur) but the leaves have much longer petioles or stalks - see last photo, sorry about the focus, but I hope the difference is clear.
