hbhatnagar‘s picture of a seed pod last week, reminding me of a similar capture of mine -the same week ! – of a pod of a Stephanotis plant on my balcony.
The parachute-like seeds are natures strategy for dispersal. They float in the wind, land on soft ground and take root. Man-made parachutes and most of man’s inventions – even the air-plane, have all their design inspiration from nature.
Hope you enjoy these pictures. I could not get the angles I wanted because the seeds kept spilling out each time I moved the plant for a better view.
