Nettle Gall

Nettle Gall

Observation - Nettle Gall - UK and Ireland. Description: Not the first post of this I have made in the last two weeks. But I am fascinated by the apparent shift to flowers. I am certain this is pretty normal throughout its range but I had not noticed before this year. Picture 8 shows a 'normal' gall on a leaf

Not the first post of this I have made in the last two weeks. But I am fascinated by the apparent shift to flowers. I am certain this is pretty normal throughout its range but I had not noticed before this year.
Picture 8 shows a 'normal' gall on a leaf vein, with the pouch open.
