Description

This image shows three seed pods in different stages of development. The pod on the right side of the page is entirely closed, the one in the middle has begun to open up, and the pod on the left is opened so the viewers can see the seeds inside. The pods grow progressively darker in color from right to left. The entire image is in shades of black, gray, and white.
