You really are an amazingly graphic artist, Michael!

I'm not sure what this is Michael, it resembles the seed pod of Nigella Damascena. Whatever it is it is an amazing macro! It deserves an abstract tag and a Y* :)

Greetings, Amelia

dear Amelia, thank you for motivating me to look it up. it is the seed pod of a 'swan plant', the favourite home of the monarch butterfly's caterpillar. thank you by the way for the yellow star, I set the 'abstract' tag ...

thank you, dear Ian, for your accolades !

dear Edina, thank you for your visit !

best regards and blessings to all of you, from

übersetzungstool sorgt für missverständnisse :

'dies ist die samenkapsel der schwanenblume, der lieblingsspeise der raupe des monarchfalters.'

lieben gruss, bernd !
