This was all that was left of the dandilion I've been using for recent challenges.
It's a difficult challenge to "define" in a picture (for me, anyway) but this idea seems to fit (the dandilion with seed is "one" or "exclusive" and when the seeds leave, i.e. divide themselves from the plant, they also then become "exclusive". So here's hoping...
Really looking forward to seeing the rest of the entries.

Post challenge:
What a roller coatster ride this turned out to be ;-) Thanks for the comments, especially 21.gif electrolost for taking the time to give such a detailed and thoughtful comment.

Hmmm. I love salsify and you've captured it well. Not sure how this fits dichotomy though. (Comment only - No vote).

nice picture I wish I could give ya a good score don't see how this fits the challenge.funny now that I am typing got my brain moving you could say that the seeds seperate from the plant are totally diffrent than the plant and are not a plant but contain the ability to produce a plant and come from the plant. the plant is not a seed but comes from a seed. So one thing could not exsist without the other and the definition of a dichotomy is a Division into twoBotany. Branching characterized by successive forking into two approximately equal divisions.the bot usually contradictory parts or opinions. the botony definition is Botany branching characterized by successive forking into two approximately equal divisions. which I think this picture falls in there somewhere so I take back my intial comment. thanks for making me think.
