Galls; May 2010

Image here of some galls I noticed on a Willow tree. These stuctures are made by various insect, perhaps a Wasp or Weevil species. The larvae live inside these structures parasitically living off the plant in some cases. Eventually the adult insect is formed inside and bores a hole in the structure to escape it...
