Mystery fluff

I came across a few bunches of these pretty seed heads by the river today.
I can't seem to identify them but feel like I should know what they are.
Anyone know?

It could be Clematis vitalba (also known as old man's beard and traveller's joy). Whatever it is it makes a lovely photo - fav!

Old mans beard is what I have always known it as. Beautiful detail and textures. I put some in my Christmas wreath, the softness worked really well.

Such artistry in nature

Sometimes the seed heads are as pretty as the flowers. This is really nice and love the details and sharpness of focus.

It is very pretty. I wouldn't have known what it was called but I have seen it on 365 before and agree it looks like old man's beard.

I looked it up:
“Clematis is a genus of about 300 species within the buttercup family Ranunculaceae. Their garden hybrids have been popular among gardeners, beginning with Clematis - jackmanii, a garden standby since 1862; more hybrid cultivars are being produced constantly. They are mainly of Chinese and Japanese origin. Most species are known as clematis in English, while some are also known as traveller's joy, a name invented for the sole British native, C. vitalba, by the herbalist John Gerard; virgin's bower for C. viticella; old man's beard, applied to several with prominent seedheads; leather flower for those with fleshy petals; or vase vine for the North American Clematis viorna.“
Well spotted. and Nice shot too.

@johnfalconer Thank you John for this info, very kind of you. Fascinating that they are part of the buttercup family and I didn't realise there were so many varieties.
