  24. Very nice! I was looking at some milkweed pods yesterday along the road and thinking what a lovely close-up subject they make. I was there to do a landscape and didn’t have my macro lens with me but perhaps I’ll go back and capture them before they ‘fly away’!

    Ahhh so thats what those are called! Laurel Lakes in my neighborhood is filled with these and the white fluffy stuff is super silky. Beautiful pic! Thanks for the information๐Ÿ™‚
