Seed Pods

Challenge #2 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
Show us seeds still in their pods or capsules, after the flowers have gone. The seeds are waiting to start their life cycle again. These should be in their natural environment, still on or near the plant whether it is a tree, shrub, or grass. If insects or other small creatures are present, that is okay, but they must not dominate the shot.
