Taken a week ago at Carr Mill Dam, St Helens. I saw these at the edge of the lake. I have no idea what they are.

Not been on line much this week, I had my monthly eye injection yesterday so feeling a lot better today. Many thanks for all your c and c's on 'Autumn leaves', they were all very much appreciated.

Interesting find and unusual shape for 'seeds'.
Hope somebody can indentify them!
Sorry to learn you have to have regular eye injections.

Well done for a great find, Ray, and for the super take. Nicely composed and showing good detail of these quite unusual seeds.
Sad to know you have an-going eye problem, trust the injections are doing all they should. Take care.

I cannot ID them either, Ray, but as Graham says, a nice find: interesting the way the seeds are stacked up in a pile....good crisp detail.

Your eye injection must be sore I hope all goes well Ray not something I would relish for certain - I seem to spend a lot of time with our GP or Nurse at the practice these things have to be done but are so time consuming!

Great pic can't help with ID tho sorry

HI Ann, (Pluckyfilly), no they are not chestnuts, they were only about 5 to 7 mm across and fairly flat besides being in a plant about one metre tall.

I see money grows on tree. Looks like a heap of coins. Very interesting seed pod, never seen.
