The tip of a seed head from a purple cone flower.

Finding this particular object is rich with potential. In the reverse lens macro world the extreme shallow DoF creates a very selective focal point/plane which across different subjects creates a more or less visible “section plane” – like a cross section of sorts.

I’m interested in this particular subject as it relates to the Fibonacci numbers that can be visualized in the spirals of the seeds in the “Echinacea purpura” or Purple Cone Flower. Nature’s spacing – functional and beautiful…

This is only the tip of the seed head, the seeds had fallen off this particular stem – which revealed the positioning and where all the seeds emanate.
