Robin's Pincushion Gall

Observation - Robin's Pincushion Gall. Description: A number of these galls growing on wild roses amidst a thicket of brambles. I suffered for this snap, inadvertantly disturbing a nest of some larger species of wasp - came away with half a dozen stings to the face and scalp!
