Just under my lime tree is a little weed in the process of releasing seeds to generate yet more weeds. Ideal candidate for a shallow depth of field? Certainly isolates the seed head from its surroundings. You can also appreciate just how dry it is here presently with the grass appearing less lush and green than usual.
Today's prowl saw me without tripod ... I just ran out to get the shot whilst the kettle was boiling! However, the seeds seem pretty sharp even though it was handheld. Click on the image to get an enlargement.
The image is unmodified remember and may benefit from a little more saturation (then again monochrome may be better). What do you think?
