This time I don't know the name of the herb that produces this seed. It's a climbing herb that produce lots of seeds like this one. When dried it seems like a web around the shrub that holds it.
But as I like the shape of this seed I posted it!
Though pending to confirm next year(1), I think it is a Clematis flammula. (English: Traveller' s joy. Español: Clematide, muermera, jazmín de monte)
(1) "Next year" arrived, and here is the flower!

Time=19:50, sunny (as usual in the south of Spain!)

SUPERB !!! When I saw the thumbail I was sure it was a chef d'oeuvre from José... The shape of the seeds is wonderful and the contrast on dark background works well.
Bravo my friend and thanks for sharing this new artistic shot.

Hi Jose,
You did well to published it. This is an amazing composition with great details. This is an original flower (?) It looks like an "eolienne" to me and that is very funny! TFS,

Hello Jose,
gorgeous, what a wonderful lightness to this image. Kathy is right it reminds me of sea stars floating in the ocean. Excellent POV and the dark BG lets the details stand out perfectly. Sharpness ist excellent, yet the warm light gives it a wonderful soft feel. Very Nice composition.

Hi Jose,
Very interesting, never seen anything like this!
An impressive capture with superb clarity in colours and some very fine details...
Very well done, educational and with textbook quality!

Hi Jose,
A very unusual looking plant, but very attractive. I love the spiral shapes, it reminds me of a firework we call a Catherine Wheel in England, that spins when lit and makes spiral shapes. Great detail, excellent light and colours and a good exposure. Good DOF too which makes the seeds stand out, excellent work.

Hola Jose,
Otra captura impresionante! Technicalmente la foto esta perfecta.
La planta es increible - gracias !

Hola José,
La verdad es que nunca había visto semillas como esta, con esa forma y colorido. El foco es bastante bueno a pesar que ambas no estan en el mismo plano. Excelente la luz y el fondo borroso y oscuro.
Un muy buen trabajo.

You have such an eye to find this gorgeous creations of nature!
Great composition Jose :)
Outstanding sharpess and colors range achieved.
Very well done.
Thanks for sharing.

Hola José,
excellent, just wonderful! This picture is a masterpiece. Technically perfect, it also shows a very unique artistic approach, presenting growth patterns of nature as the basics of what we humans call "beauty" and "harmony". I admire the silent and playful approach you are combining with such a powerful composition and message. Congratulations, and thank you, dear friend.
