Spare Umbels

click to view larger

Although my focus on the day this picture was taken was to capture the lovely spring ephemeral flowers, the spare heads of umbelliferae family plants, most likely Queen Anne’s Lace, caught and held my attention for long moments. They looked like the afterimage of fireworks, frozen in time.  I especially like how the dry remnants stand in stark contrast to the greening going on all around. It seemed an appropriate selection for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Spare by the Daily Post.
