Macro photos of South African seeds by photographer Dillon Marsh based in Cape Town. The seeds look completely alien with bare hooks and barbs designed to latch onto the fur or fleece of passing animals, while others grow sharp spikes intended to pierce hooves and feet. These forms that are familiar features of the tall grass or underbrush of South African landscapes allows them to spread to new areas, even crossing to other continents earning them the collective name hitchhiker plants.
