Seed pod

By ColleenA
Good morning from a very wet Cape Town...it is pouring with rain. We are off to our Game farm this morning so my internet will be sporadic.
Thank you for the great response to my flower yesterday and a big thanks to Myra and Lillian for their UA's.

Today's image is a strange seed pod and I think its related to yesterdays flower but as I have no idea what the flower is i could do no research. I just like that it looks like an alien spider. V2 another similar but a different focus point.
have a nice day GrinGrin

V2 for me Colleen...I like the way the your eye leads to the focal point in the lower centre of the image and the outer edges are all blurry as opposed to V1 where the image has two focal points centre and left....
Have a great weekend my friend! Angela
