Alien Pods


Preparing to Launch

A giant weed of the wetlands has engineered an elaborate seed deployment structure of grand proportions. Its efforts have not gone unnoticed, as a fly-by-day hitchhiker seed has decided to piggyback on the impressive launch pad in order to better its own chances for a successful flight. When the forces of pod opening and wind collide, power imbued weed seeds will fill the air. The structures for propagation are all around us, moving deliberately according to their grand design. Who needs aliens, when you’ve got this?

Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.

We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
