Burrs, that stick in your socks

These are tiny, like rice kernels, but what's interesting is the life that goes on in miniature right at my feet. The spiders that wind their webs around these burrs I've never seen, I can hardly even see the burrs themselves until they're clinging to my socks. A plant's attempt at locomotion, I guess? But a flash brings them into view.
Shot with the E-5 and ZD 50 plus EX-25, on a macro rail with a white plastic collar around the subject and FL-36 to one side. At f8, I think, from a composite stack of 64 images. And a ridiculous hour to set the shot up, another hour of shooting, and several hours to get it processed. Fun!

Re: Burrs, that stick in your socks

Great shot but i hate these darned things - they get stuck in my dogs coat, worst of all behind his ears where they matt up his fur there and have to be removed with the clippers
