Insects on dandelion seed heads, time-lapse footage. Also known as a clockhead, these are the seed heads of the dandelion flower (Taxacum officinale). The seed heads consist of a mass of individual seeds attached at one end to the central stalk, and at the other end to a feathery parachute-like structure known as a pappus. The fine hairs of the pappus allow the seed to be lifted from the seed head and carried a long distance by the wind.
