_MG_6681 Asclepias (Butterfly Weed) Seed Pods

Alas, no Halloween-colored milkweed bugs this year. I was looking forward to shooting them, but a host of other wee buggies. I love how the seeds look, kissed by the late afternoon sun. I planted some of them and will water them regularly, as I learned you have to plant these right after you harvest them, or they will dry out and not germinate.

Some seeds and seed pods are beautiful and the milkweed is no exception!

Brilliant lighting and fine focusing shows off the fine silkiness of the seed strands. V.
Very nice work Isabel.
