I noticed these beautiful patterns and textures on the surface of the cones of an Abies koreana (Korean Fir) tree that grows in my garden. I think they resemble flying birds.

The cone is quite small, about 4.5cm in length, so I used my macro lens to reveal the detail. Due to the shallow depth-of-field of the lens, I captured 18 images at different focal lengths, which I then focus stacked together.
