This often occurs when insects of certain species lay their eggs inside gum leaves.

Wow this looks really cool. I love the colors here. The insect world is really a world of its own, a bit creepy sometimes :)) but yet wounderful....(and I envy your 30 degrees)

That is so cool looking. It's like something out of a sci-fi or fantasy cartoon/movie. I expect to see some alien creature pop out of one of those little tube like growths.

Cool macro! It looks surreal... I'm expecting them to start moving or do a little animated dance!

So interesting. Like tentacles :-) These are of insects or the plant?

These are caused by a insect laying eggs into the leaf of the plant. Thanks for your comment!
