Original Format: Digital
Orientation: Portrait
Shot: Close-up of a mature megastrobilus (seed cone). Photographer's note: "This is a cone of an eastern hemlock. I feel like in not too many years the eastern hemlock will be extirpated in most areas of the southeastern U.S. I can't believe how many beautiful eastern hemlock trees have been killed by the introduced hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae)."
