Hi Ferran, Good details and composition.

nice pod, new acacia for me, greetings Ori

Hello Ferran,

Hope life is good. We have a number of varieties of acacia but this one is slightly different perhaps due to its pods otherwise the resemblance is striking. I love acacias.Thanks a lot for sharing a wonderful photo. I am a student and teacher of English Literature but you can call me a novice, self-taught botanist. It was a pleasure peeping into your amazing world of flora....take care....warmest regards/Abid
