These fascinating hooks allow these seeds to be carried from place to place, hopefully conducive for starting a new life. I read an article in Wired Magazine that told the story of these annoying burrs and how they inspired the origin of Velcro by a Swiss engineer. I wonder what other annoying things could inspire the creation of something wondrous. This is the sixth day in a row I have spent with my 105mm Macro lens handheld looking at things close up. I am getting to know how shallow the depth of field can be and how fleeting focus is when the wind blows or you take a small breath.
