Caption: Wind-blown seeds. Close-up view of the seed head of a Hawkweed (Hieracium sp.). When mature, the seeds are released by the plant and are carried by the wind due to the hair-like growths at the end of each seed stalk. This greatly increases the range to which seeds are carried, aiding the rapid spread of the plant.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
