Acacia pod with seeds
The time of year had come for acacia pods to open and release their precious contents. I looked for quite a while to find a 'photogenic' pod, my search was over the moment I spotted this one - I had found the perfect subject! I just loved the shape and colour of the pod, the beautiful shiny black seeds and the way that three had fallen to the base, seemingly waiting to be ejected to take their place in the cycle of life.
