Is that a real Gumnut baby?

Today we went for a walk and took one of the Boys' "shortcuts" through the bush. We saw what May Gibbs could have referred to as "Gumnut babies".
See how the little gum nuts (Eucalyptus tree seeds) look like little heads with pointy hats? The cross stitch we showed previously was probably based on something like this.
