It's a wasp that leaves, yes.

So, what is it?

Don, you're a "tree man", aren't you? I think that you should be able to get it from here!

This happens most frequently on oak species...

The "thing" is not a tree wasp, but the response of the tree to the wasp laying eggs. It is a gall, and I've called this one Asterix. Look, I'll show you.



The hole you see is the exit hole when the wasp is fully developed. The gall is woody tissue deposited by the tree around the wasp's egg, similar to the way that a pearl is formed. The wasp in question is a Gall wasp, not a Tree wasp.

Neuschwanstein is a german name...

doesn´t mean anything special... neu means new, Schwan means swan and stein means stone... so you could say newswanstone ;-) (because there was another castle called Schwanstein before)

btw, Neuschwanstein is said to be the model for the castle of Cinderella

edit: oh my....I think I missed some pages *g*
