Pine cones are so commonplace that it only occurred to me recently to look to see what they look like when they are first forming. The mature pine cones from this tree in my neighborhood are large and have hard sharp edges. The newly formed cones, shown here, are soft and rounded.  Young or old, the pine cones settle into a nest of pine needles on the branch. Here the juxtaposition between the rounded softness of the young pine cones and the hard prickliness of the pine needles is my contribution to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition.
