The Next Generation

Interesting Seeds, originally uploaded by jw_creations.

Sometimes it is the smallest objects in nature that create an opportunity for a formidable photo.

These seeds of unknown origin (anyone know?) were scattered everywhere at Fox Island Nature Reserve, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Employing the 'sit-the-camera-on-the-ground-and-take-a-picture' technique, along with a short 18mm lens, some great lighting, and a little luck - this shot captures in extreme detail what may go un-noticed by many.

This looks like the dried out fruit from a sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua). The fruit contains capsules and each capsule contains one or two seeds.
