Artist's Description

When I was a little girl, I had no idea that these guys were anything but a fun natural toy. We’d bend the stems into a loop and feed the seed head through the loop. Nip the loop together tight and pull the stem with the seed head back through the loop fast … if done correctly, it made an excellent missile. Sort of like a spit ball .. without the ball. Or the spit.

Now that I’m older and wiser, I know these are nasty weeds and that they will wreck havoc in my husband’s beautifully manicured green, grassy lawn. And I am further aware that shooting these things at my enemies is frowned upon. Even without the spit.

Image taken at the edge of a pond in Montgomery County Maryland … the amazing golden color was actually the color of the water itself. The place was teeming with dragon flies, turtles, fish, herons, canada geese and mallards. I decided to focus on the weeds.

Snapped with the Nikon D300 and the 70-300mm vr Nikon / Nikkor lens. A bit of editing in Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop CS5, and my thanks to Belle Fleur for the great texture.
