Phoneography: Pods and Seeds and a Slug

Our local park offered up another visual delight for my iPhone this week, some seed pods … and a slug.

The furry seeds and the slimy slug make for interesting textures. I wonder if he’s eating the seeds, finding a place to stay moist or looking for smaller stuff than he to eat.

It was a bit of a challenge holding the pod and my phone still enough for some macro shots. With a little cropping on the clearest of the bunch, I focused on the seeds.

This last one reminds me of a nest with broken egg shells. I wonder if birds discovered the open pods and feasted on the nutrient rich seeds… I can’t imagine that little slug did! πŸ˜‰

As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day. :D

    I figured I could get away with at least one slug shot. They are fascinating, if slimy. I had never seen seeds like this before either. Thank you for stopping by and commenting!

    How fascinating! It really is amazing what we can capture when we stop to look around and enjoy the view. I love the fact that you took these photos with your iPhone! It’s nice to be able to walk around without a giant professional camera. I look forward to seeing more of your photos.

    Thank you so much Yvette! I know that I eat seeds and nuts to give my body lots of good stuff… πŸ˜€

    wow – love the color in these photos (iPhones rock!!!!0 and I agree – it looks like little shells were cracked open… and I like how you said birds likely feasted on the nutrients = because those seeds are jam packed, eh? have a great day Meghan. πŸ™‚

    I like that bit of mystery too. I actually didn’t notice some of the seeds were ‘broken into’ until I was cropping the shot. I love those kinds of surprises. Thank you Sally!

    What an interesting subject–these seedpods are apt models, especially like the first and the last. I like the last because it shows a bit of mystery and reality. Happy Photo Challenge.

    Excellent, Meghan. I love these shots and would take that same photos in (pardon my pun) a flash. I’m still waiting for Sally to enable all the pingbacks, as I’m there are more people who have posted. But I hopped over here via your gravatar after you liked my post, figuring you had yours up. πŸ™‚
