[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken in late April with some of the cluster of buds opening with their fresh white colors. The pinkish buds are still closed & will join the others.

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]

Hi Umar,

Interesting image with good detail, composition and exposure. I seem to remember a song about tumbleweeds.

Hi Umar,

How did I miss this one? What a beautiful shot. Amazing how you captured the entire plant showing off the wonderful patterns in the way it grows. Colors are beautiful, clarity is excellent. A superb composition and I think this is one of your best.


Bonjour Umar,
Cette agréable publication, bien composée dans son cadrage serré, est proche de l'abstraction ; judicieuse prise de vue en plongée rehaussée par la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
