Caption: Lesser burdock (Arctium minus) burs and leaves, with a spider's cobweb. The hooked burs adhere to animal fur and clothing , leading to the efficient dispersal of the seed-containing fruit inside. The shoots and roots of this plant are edible, and it is used with dandelions to make a traditional drink (Dandelion and Burdock). Photographed in August, in Hertfordshire, England.
