[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This cute annual has differently shaped seeds on the same inflorescence. This phenomenon is called heterocarpy. Some seeds are disperesed as balloons in the wind and others are stuck in sheep fur and our socks, thus dispersed to new areas.

What an interesting plant Ori, such an unusual shape and seed carrying. Quite an artistic shot too. Well done.
