Queen Anne's Lace

This flower of Daucus carota reminds me of a burst of fireworks for Independence Day.

Thanks. The plant was growing along the street. It doesn't get any more natural than that.

Thanks to all for the comments. If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can see a little black star in the center of the flower.
