This shot was taken in late April and as one can see clearly several of its intricate flowering stages...from the small green/purple/pinkish ones to its largest white folded one.


Daucus carota (common names include wild carrot, (UK) bird's nest, bishop's lace, and (US) Queen Anne's lace) is a flowering plant in the family Apiaceae, native to temperate regions of Europe, southwest Asia and northeast North America; domesticated carrots are cultivars of a subspecies, Daucus carota subsp. sativus.

Daucus carota is a variable biennial plant, usually growing up to 1 m tall and flowering from June to August. The umbels are claret-coloured or pale pink before they open, then bright white and rounded when in full flower, measuring 3–7 cm wide with a festoon of bracts beneath; finally, as they turn to seed, they contract and become concave like a bird's nest. The dried umbels detach from the plant, becoming tumbleweeds.[1]

It is always wonderful to see images of flowers that you have taken... taken by others with a different set of eyes and photographic technique AND a different country too. Yours is beautiful. TFS Umar... :)
