Eucalyptus fruit capsules & CP995

A big branch of the Red River Gum tree, Eucalyptus camaldulensis succumbed to the over night wind/rain.. and fell next to the coffee shop. I picked up two clusters of fruits and forgotten about them. A few days later the fruit captures dried up, split and released tiny tiny yellow seeds. I propped one against the window sill and the other on my desk imaged using my old Nikon CP995.

'Spin-tops' shaped fruit capsule (~ 5mm diameter,4 chambers, unopened)
You could use a pair for ear pins ..
