Unnamed spotting

Quercus coccifera


Today morning I spotted this odd leave shape. I had never seen such thing. Make no mistake, this isn't the true form of it. Those little tubes are actually an extension of the leaf itself, turned into tunnels that were dug up by some sort of insect, that I was not able to see. I think that's a Quercus coccifera leaf, but I'm not sure anymore. ALSO, although I spotted this, this beautiful photo isn't, but was taken by my friend Pedro Nicolau.
