This was caught in a spider's thread against the trunk of a very tall pine tree. About 2cm long. Is it a male cone (microstrobilus)? The branches of the tree are far too high to tell if there are more up there, even with my camera. I don't know what kind of pine it is - except the needles are about four inches long and the big, hard cones are four to six inches long. On the other hand - it might be something completely irrelevant from another tree or plant that has been blown there by the wind - though nothing but grass and daisies etc. immediately near by.
