[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Daucus carota (Queen Ann's Lace, Wild Carrot)

The plants grow 2-4 feet high. Image at left is blossom and to right the seeded head. Wild carrots are a serious threat to domestic carrot seed growers because the presence of wild carrots in the vicinity of seed producing carrot farms can result in cross pollenation of seed crops. The wild strain produces a woody, nonedible root, undesirable as a carrot as everyone is accustomed to eating.

Blossom taken at F/22, 1/180, ISO 200
Seed Pods taken at F/13, 1/250, ISO 200

Composite photo assembled with APS, CS5 Extended. Minimal sharpening and cropped accordingly.
