Golden Cask 2

.....a nigella seed pod..

I ran into massive problems with maintenance on a web site (that I own) today (Friday). This kept my computer busy for some time--- and corrections will continue for awhile--- so, very little time for ePz---leaving you with this image, I will not post 'til I recover all and have some time to look into your postings.

Jenn,
The grit and tonality here is perfect -- as is the pin sharp focus.

So sorry to hear about the problems with the web site.

Seems that these flowers make for super images at all stages of their life cycle, Jenn.
Sorry to hear of your web site problems.....hope you get that sorted to your satisfaction quickly.......not having such myself, at least that's one computing worry I don't have to face.
Take care.
Ronnie.

How pretty. I'd never have thought this was a seed. It looks like one of those small bells you get on toys and cat collars.

I often think what nature does to a fading flower or seedhead is so magical - the result (at least for us photographers!!) can beat the original flower by miles! This is a perfect example and you've taken excellent advantage of it, Jennn! Do hope your website issues are sorted soon.
