Anemone Seed Core Remains by Bluebonnet 9840

When I was looking through my archive to select pictures for the retrospective miniseries you saw early last month, I came across some images from March 27, 2012, at McKinney Falls State Park in southeast Austin that I’d forgotten about. This portrait from that group, which employs the technique of limited focus, shows a single seed that was still clinging to the downy remains of a ten-petal anemone, Anemone berlandieri. (If you don’t recall what one of these anemones looks like when it’s fresh, you can have a look back at that stage.) The formless purple in the background was all that remained, photographically, of a bluebonnet, Lupinus texensis.
