Getting closer, Tim. Now you've got three of four.
And to be fair:
Yes,

I should send you a shirt anyway for a McJam freebie!

We could be picayunish and say, he only guessed one of the species!
But since this was the one in question, and all others have been identified...ok.

So we took another pic, showing another bridge made of the mystery species for comparison:

IMG_1812.jpg

Even though it has been correctly named, I submit the photo anyway to show some of the remarkable variety within this species.
Perhaps what has been throwing the eye is the coat of wax atop all these bridges? Thanks for playing along,
Steve
