Spotted this strange seed pod from a flower whilst out walking yesterday evening. Bizarre - looks like some strange creature crawling along the stone surface. NEX-7 with Sony 30 Macro. Martin

Very nice shot of a fascinating seed! I especially like the framing here, fits the subject very well imho :)

As always well seen Martin.

I guess the spikes are to protect it from birds etc ?

Good unusual shot.

Looks very interesting, nice play with focus and depth of field.

It's from a nigella plant. Also called Love in a Mist. It's a pretty, self-seeding plant I have in my garden.

Very nicely taken shot.

Aha - we have a horticulturist in our midst. Thanks for the information. I must post some shots of the flowers from the same location. Regards, Martin

A shot of the Nigella plant taken a few weeks back with the NEX-7 and Sony 85/2.8. Shame about the grey background which in my view lets the image down. Thanks to gouldina for the information. Regards, Martin

I'm not sure I agree with you about the grey background tbh. Either way, it's a very crisp image of a very fractally (I may have made this word up) beautiful plant.

Interesting seed!'

I also like the 2nd photo and disagree about the grey background. I find it makes the blue and green pop out.

very good seen

the faithful colours look great and the gray background is perfect for me cause it gives the coulors more strength

Beautiful composition in the first, Martin. And I love the colour scheme and crop too!

Wooohooo.....now........how is that at all possible with an EVF-camera, Mr. MGJS ??

The bokeh especially in the first one isn´t perfect; how do you see bokeh for 30mm/nex7 compared to same 30mm on A700 ? Lens or cam ? Yes, in theory lens, but...?

I just love the #1 shot, wonderful tiny dof that just isolates this seemingly outerspace plant.
#2 is good.
