Caption: Macrophotograph of a seed of a plant which belongs to the family known as Geraminaceae (genus Erodium). About 90 species belong to this genus which is closely related to the Geranium genus. In humid weather these seeds sink into the ground in the same way as a screw penetrates into wood or other materials. (See T990/036 for the picture of a screw).
