Here's a challenge, at this time of gift-giving, to show us interesting ways nature wraps its treasures. The subject may be the outer wrapping OR the treasure inside, or both. This might be a seed pod, a case moth (or bagworm), a shell, a bud just opening, a rock with crystals hidden inside.... Macro and close-up shots welcome. SIZE: 1,600px MAXIMUM ON LONGER SIDE.
