[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Queen Anne's lace or wild carrot, native to the Old World but naturalized and often weedy throughout North America. Similar in appearance to the cultivated carrot (which is believed to have been derived from this plant), it has feathery foliage but a woody root. The tiny white flowers bloom in a lacy, flat-topped cluster (called an umbel) until they wither, when the cluster becomes nest-shaped (whence another of its names, bird's nest). The plant was formerly used in folk medicine as a diuretic and a stimulant.

Hi Yves!

You present us an amazing picture, I like these "umbrellas" very much and they contrast nicely with the dark background. The richness of details is impressive and although it is a simple picture it has a pronounced artistic effect.

Kind regards
