Snow, Lichen, Fossil Pear

This pair of found things,  bark patterned with lichen and a wizened leathery pear, had both fallen onto the New Jersey snow. The indent (a word so useful in editing) where the pear had landed, perhaps blown down overnight, can be seen here in the upper right.  A pear preserved in this near-fossil state was a perfect wintery treasure.
