I agree with arctangent about the difficulty to photographing this subject--and you did it beautifully.
Excellent capture of this most difficult of forms (open sphere) to achieve sharp to detail throughout. The silky shimmery texture really comes through.
I love this there is so much detail here. Love the sheen on the "leaves" We found one in the yard once, but didn't realize what it was. Great shot!
I loved blowing these seed heads as a child (never knew their official name)!
Wonderful detail in this closeup
Beautifully composed shot
Wow, that's a very big one. Great find and capture.
