    MIlkweed is endlessly photogenic. Nicely done.

    Very fluffy. I’d probably be allergic, but it makes for a very interesting shot. 🙂

      Definitely bad for those with allergies. I could only stay about 30 min in the prairie, my eyes were swelling up. But I was determined to get a few good shots before I left.

    Brings back memories. When I used to walk to elementary school I passed by a pond surrounded by milkweed:)

    I appreciate your dedication in getting the shot! It’s wonderfully done – nicely isolated and perfectly focussed.

    One thing that’s hard for me to get used to is the fact that the rambling milkweed that I have on one portion of my fence never goes to seed like this. Your photo is what I’m used to– even after all these years in the desert! The desert version is quite aggressive, and if the butterflies didn’t like it so much, I’d get rid of it all.

    Stunning shot Leslie — I feel like I could just blow on my computer and see the threads scatter 🙂
