Goatsbeard

By taggart  
Goatsbeard

This: a partial seed head of the YELLOW GOATSBEARD, a wild plant common from Canada to Georgia, USA. The yellow flower opens at the top of a tall stem in the morning, closes as the day warms up, and eventually forms a 3 inch ball of parachute like seeds.. Unstable, they fly similarly to dandelions.

I am glad so many enjoyed "Tawney!" Thank you all for votes, comments and awards!

This is beautiful.
I'm thinking b&w, with some darkening on the red channel and a bit of added contrast...

I love the way you have presented this, Jenn, showing just a quarter of the goatsbeard and filling the frame with its intricate detail.
