These are gorgeous shots - milkweed is so beautiful even after the flowers are gone. These are wonderful - and I guess there will be more milkweed next year. Good.

I love your macro Monday.

One day I have to get the confidence to take the 300mm zoom off my Canon.

Beautiful silky milkweed seeds and parachutes, I especially like the 4th one with the rounded shapes.

Wonderful images - such beauty is in abundance when we take the time to slow our pace of life and simply observe our surroundings. Thank you for sharing these shots.

Ethereal -- just lovely. Makes me think I need to look much closer at 'weeds'!!(This is too pretty to even be called that.)

Lovely images. Swamp Milwed is vital for the Monarch butterfly. Everyone should plant it in their back yard.
