Seeds and Spider

A new job has meant that I have not been able to devote as much time as I’d like towards photography and maintaining my blog. Nevertheless, I’m determined to make a new beginning starting with this post!

This was shot at the Eden Project in Cornwall earlier this year. See the photo in large size to appreciate the detail on the seed head. Also can you spot a tiny spider photobombing this composition? 🙂
