Took this image while walking through our local nature center. These seed pods seemed to jump out at me and say take my picture. It was a bit windy out so I used some fill flash to help stop the motion and add a little sparkle on a partly cloudy day.
Post processing: cropped, levels, brighten/contrast, slight sharpening, cleaned up budds just a tad.

I love the lines all leaning gently to the right, love the pastel yet warm autumn colors. Great shot all around.
