Wow, it was still hungry after eating that bird? Remind me to steer clear of milkweed.

It is a milkweed pod and they make great subjects. Well done! V

Yeah, what Fabienne said.

cette fleur prend une position d'oiseau, c'est bien vu !

No wonder it tried to bite you Larry, you came too close and ruffled its feathers.
But despite the perilous circumstances, you kept your cool and composed a beautiful shot with great insight and depth of field. Wonderful shot.

It's a great shot - that's what it is! Good use of depth of field Larry.

Never met a pod that mean looking! Take your machette next time.

Neat find and shot.

Me!! Me!! I know!! Call on me!!

It's an empty milkweed pod. Somewhere I read that they used to make featherbed sort of things out of the fluff. The edges of the empty, dried up pods can be sharp. Have you kept your tetanus boosters up to date? (She said, wagging the finger of nagging.)

If in doubt, beat it to death with a big stick, works for me.

Pretty mean looking. Great shot.
