A Cherry Tree

There is a cherry tree in front of one of the buildings where we live. Last Sunday I passed here and found there were two of my colleagues who are a couple in our unit, standing in the cherry tree by using a ladder. I asked them what they were doing. They said they were picking the cherry. I didn't know there is a cherry tree here untill then. The cherry did not become red fully then, most of them were still green. I asked if they dared to eat acid fruit. They answered there would be no cherry left if they waited for them to turn red. It is true the fruits of the trees in the public site usually are picked one by one by the passers. There are several peach trees scattering in the buildings of the resident area. You could find the peaches on the tree were picked overnight without one left when you came here next day. However it was the first time I knew there is a cherry tree although I have passed here many many times.

What surprised me most was the phenomenon the cherry tree has displayed before me. I found the leaves of the cherry tree were so strange. At first It seemed there was a  light green caterpillar on each leaf. But in fact the caterpillar was the leaf itself. I know the animal's mimetic function to protect itself from attack by the enemy. It was also the first time I knew the plant similarly has the mimetic function.

How miraculous the nature is!
