Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire in the 1980s.
This is an extreme close up of the hooks on a seed head of Lesser Burdock (Arctium minus). Alternative English names include Little Burdock, Louse-Bur and Common Burdock.
The hooks allow the seed heads to attach themselves to humans and animals for seed dispersal. The hooks gave the inventor of Velcro the idea for the product.
