Agrimony burr. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a seed capsule from an agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria) plant, showing the characteristic hooks. These hooks get caught in the fur of animals enabling the capsule to be carried away from the parent plant, ensuring a long-range distribution of the seeds. Magnification: x25 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
