Here's a close-up of it when it's not dead and dessicated.

Freidaw,

"Smooth Tree Bark" isclose so I'll end this before everyone's frustration point is exceeded.

This is actually the dried trunk of a papaya tree. After dying the outer bark decays and exposes the inner spongy structure of the trunk just below the bark. The structure is geometric in design much like an air conditioner filter as Calr had suggested sometime back.

The picture of the flower is of course the papaya flower which develops into one of these below:

Note the trunk below the fruits. One could not guess from the trunk what lay hidden underneath.

Mahalo and Aloha for the guesses.
