[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was one of the days when one is not lucky enough to capture anything significant with his camera. I was roaming in the woods behind my house and noticed this Mimosa. I liked the back light and looked something like a candy floss.

Hooked Mimosa is a medium sized much branched shrub up to 2 m tall. It has hairy branches, very prickly - prickles 4-5 mm long, hooked. Leaf bipinnate. Flowers in spherical heads, solitary or paired in upper axils, peduncle 1.5-3.5 cm long, hairy. The plant is browsed by cattle. It may be grown as a hedge plant and may also be tried for green manuring purposes. Flowering: April-August.

Very vibrant flower with radiating energy to all sides, good lighting. But I wish you should have used the rule of one third here to make it more striking visually. tfs.
