Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

I’ve hiked around the state of Wisconsin in all seasons, but I only encountered this thing hanging from a tree branch once.  I got home and looked it up on the ‘net and found out that it is a wild cucumber pod, dehydrated in the winter air, clinging like a parasite from the branch of a host tree.  It is a “foreign body” to the tree, and it certainly looked foreign to me…like it might have been dropped to Earth from another planet.
