Botany picture #210: Acaena fruits

Today I gave a lecture on fruit and seed morphology, with a few words on dispersal syndromes at the end. In that spirit, today's botany picture is an example of exozoochory in action: Acaena (Rosaceae) fruits stuck to somebody's shoe in Kosciusko National Park, January 2015.

Actually, perhaps I should have included this picture in the presentation.
