I came across these seed pods on a walk last week. I've seen them before, maybe they're some kind of plant in the milk weed family.
This time I stopped to get a good, close look. I especially love the way they drape down and their color. This group had a seed or two still in one of the pods. It also had the remains of a spiders web around the top.
I used the Canon G10 in macro mode and processed it with ACR.
