Plants typically depend on other forces to disperse their seeds â€“ wind, water or animals. The storkâ€™s bill (scientific name: Erodium) takes things into its own hands, so to speak. This amazing plant uses its ballistic, arrow-like shape to transport its seed for a distance. The seed then responds to moist ground conditions and uses its arrow-shape to drill itself into the ground, using curling and twisting motions. The Storkâ€™s Bill is native to the Mediterranean. As children wandering the fields in Israel we used to stick the seed on our shirt and watch it curl. I shot this specific seed after it landed on the ground in an open field near Raâ€™anana, a town 10km north of Tel Aviv.
