It's incredible, really. It features a central spire and an encircling picket-fence that's been reinforced by horizontal rails, and is strung together by a series of radially oriented guy wires. An impressive edifice at any scale, the structure measures less than 2 cm across. And here's the real kicker: nobody knows what made it.

They are eggs in the middle, and the outside is for protection.
Very cool, I have seen pics of these on trees before, unlike the above pic that is on a tarpaulin.
