Anemone shedding seeds

Anemone Seeds Coming Undone 3493

Yesterday’s post showed a mostly white anemone at the Riata Trace Pond on March 11th. Within a few feet of that flower I found another one that had matured to the point that its sepals had fallen away and its central column was coming apart. The seeds were blowing in the breeze, so I used a shutter speed of 1/800 of a second to stop most of the movement. Although I’ve showed anemones here several times, this is the first view of its seeds to appear in these pages. What I have showed here more than once that’s similar, if you overlook the pod, is the release of milkweed seeds.
