It’s the end of the week and that means #FridaysAreBokelicious!  This is a Monkey Puzzle tree – Araucaria araucana.   They are such interesting things – nearly the entire tree is covered with these scaly needles.  I shot this one nearly 4 years ago, on a Kelby WorldWide Photowalk in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. It was a blast!

There’s another one coming up on Oct 1st – if you haven’t signed up yet – there’s still plenty of time to do so!  I’m hosting one at Columbia State Park you’re welcome to sign up for that one, or find one near you.  All skill levels and all cameras are welcome!
