@Mireille T.: Thank you for your comment. Rice is still grown in the area where I live, so I take lots of photos. If you would like to see some more, please click here and you will see some of the many other photos I have of rice cultivation.
Amazingly, I share Mireille's experience - a first for me, too !

I have seen your other rice images, but I don't think one so close; this is wonderful.
Tell me, does each of these golden 'petals' contain a single grain of rice? Does the golden cover break away on its own or is there a process to open it?

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thank you. Yes each of these little pods you see holds one grain of rice. At harvest time some of that bran is stripped away (making "brown rice") and then more will be stripped away according to how brown or white the customer likes the rice.
really nice composition, and beautiful colour

Thank you for your added information. Having never seen this myself, it raised my questions. Now I know where the bran is (that we all need). ;D
