Hello, Richard. I see that you have a similar image to this in your portfolio, but it suffers with the same problem, overexposure. The seeds are white and the light is strong, so you need to compensate for that when shooting, by adjusting your exposure accordingly. Also, they are not all sitting on the same focal plane, and if you look very closely, the ones nearest to your camera are out of focus. Try not to get too close. You have good depth of field but, without having your camera settings, it's difficult to make further suggestions. However, all is not lost because I found it was possible to recover the detail from the whites in editing. I cropped the image a little in my modification, darkened it quite a lot, deepened the shadows and reduced the highlights, then selectively sharpened the seedheads.
