weekly photo challenge: weightless

20151227-145305

The prompt for this week’s photo challenge, immediately made me think of this photograph of lighter-than-air seed pods, which I took on a sunny afternoon a couple of weeks ago whilst out walking.

I’m not sure what the plant is, I’m afraid, but it certainly looked beautiful in the low winter sunlight. I have to confess that after I took the picture, I gave the plant a little shake, and released those tiny fluffy parachutes up into the air. Not quite weightless perhaps, but not far off.

  1. They’re just beautiful aren’t they, especially in low, mellow light. I’m afraid I can never resist giving them a little shake and setting the seeds free though.
