My last image showed signs of Past, Present and Future..........this one is definitely "Past".

Taken against a dark backdrop and with fill-in flash in daylight, it's identity again eludes me: the idea for the shot arose from a prompt from a fellow Glasgow member.

Details: see EXIF

My thanks to all who visited my last posting.......your comments are so much appreciated.

Ronnie.

I'm not going to even hazard a guess on this one Ronnie (though it could be a Willowherb of some sort?) but it makes a great picture.

Once again, Patrick has come to my rescue with a suggestion re. ID.......and I think he is again 100% correct......these are seed heads of Rosebay Willow Herb.

a wonderful graphic image, the 'frozen' effect is intriguing
we got something like this in the Wet West as well... the small hairy willowherb it comes with some tiny blue flowers and withers to a very similar fluffy thing. yours seems to be more furry, like the Scottish cattle!

Yes I thought rosebay willow herb (or rbwh as it's known in our family)! It grows so well in the north of England and Scotland. Love the lighting.

I think it's definitely Willow Herb Ronnie, it's quite interesting seeing wild flowers go through their life cycle, Cow Parsley for instance looks quite arty when it dries out. Willow Herb looks quite cottony near its final stages, well worth noting.
