Hooks all the way down

Hooks all the way down

Two close-ups of a seed-head of a teazle as the seeds ripen towards maturity. Each seed is attached to a long spike which has a hook at the far end, perfect for getting stuck in the fur of some animal which will then disperse the seed well away from the parent plant. These close views show the spikes are covered in lesser hooks all down towards the seeds themselves.
