This small Banksia (Integrifolia) pod is such typical plant in of parts of the Australian bush in the heat of summer.  The delicate flowers have long gone and only the dry seed pod remains, with the capsules that held the seed echoing their silent call up and down the pod.  Whether the seeds germinate to continue the story of the parent is now up to fate.
