Light refraction on Fireweed-seeds
While testing my new Tamron AFR70/300 on several plants and flowers I passed a very steep slope overgrown with fireweeds.The sun was relatively low above the slope that I noticed a silky lustre beetween the seeds. As more I was moving the plants beewenn me and the sun, the effect merged into an incredible refraction of light on the silky like seeds. I shot a few pictures and those which where slighty off focus showed very bright colours. This effect seems to be similar with light refraction on spider-webs. In this case though colous where extremely bright.
