Wonderful, Mic. Amazing creature and photo! 🙂
Thanks, harrie! Good to hear that you liked it.
In its going-to-seed phase, the flower is so full of life and gorgeous in every way.
🥴…you are so right! It’s a “Closing Umbel”. I photograph this shape in the winter when it is dried up and brown. I wonder why it never occurred to me that the green version of that shape would immediately precede the brown. Thanks, Lynn!
But it does look like a strange monster about to open its mouth. 🙂 And seriously, I’ve seen other photos of Queen Anne’s Lace seedheads but nothing like this – you took it to a different level. (I have some in a vase right now – flowers and seedheads).
