Milkweed

Two views of Common Milkweed seed pods:

I’ve been photographing milkweed seeds for a long time. It’s a challenge to do something different. The first pod presented me with something new – the symmetrical cluster of seeds radiating from a common center, pinned to the end of a pod. The second one uses selective focus.

  1. I love the flower-like appearance of the fluff in the first photo. It’s really amazing; I can’t remember ever seeing such an image before. Beyond that, I’m a touch envious. I still haven’t seen any milkweed pods with fluff this year. Between our floods and our winds, I think our area’s fluff grew soggy or blew away.
