Nature disburses its seeds in many ways, often using the wind as with this plant, These seeds also catch in fur and feathers as well as clothing, all aiding to a widespread scattering. The seeds appear to be covered in a fine web as fine as a spider’s web.

This unrecognised seed pod was captured with my old Nikon coolpix vintage about ’86 and still going strong. It had a minute sensor by todays standards but still takes a good picture.

I am not an artist but but have dabbled with wood, clay, and paint over the years andand of course photography. My aim with the camea is to only use photo editing programmes to ‘tweak’ the photo, is a fraction too dark or light, to to crop and occasionally slight sharpen to highlight a particular feature.
RedBubble is inspiring,and when I see the quality of all the art produced by its members I realise how much I have to learn.
