And oh it smells heavenly. No wonder the butterflies love it.
Milkweed is so very lovely if you examine it up close.
My macro lens and I had a photo session with it this past week.

MACRO MONDAY 2
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
Though I've heard the name "Milkweed" numerous times I don't think I've ever actually seen it until now. Beautiful little flowers and real nice close up pictures!

Neat photos! Especially like the top one. I planted some milkweed this year, but it hasn't grown any flowers yer. (At least it's still growing!)

Excelentes aproximaciones y una suavidad de colores muy atractiva.

Have a nice weekend

Absolutely gorgeous! Nice macro work!

I use to be fascinated by these flowers when I was a child, they sure are pretty though :-)

These are so so breathtaking...

Perfect Pictures. Compliments. I read on Wikipedia that in the past, the high dextrose content of the nectar led to milkweed's use as a source of sweetener for Native Americans and voyageurs.
June 25, 2016 at 12:23 PM
Wow! What amazing photos and an even amazing plant!
June 25, 2016 at 11:06 PM
Yours looks different than mine but the butterflies still like it!
June 26, 2016 at 4:28 AM
I especially like that fourth shot.
June 26, 2016 at 5:14 AM
Felicia your photos are heavenly....just like milkweed...what eye candy. I love the scent too now as it grows in my garden!
June 26, 2016 at 7:22 AM
I have not seen milkweed before. Gorgeous macro shots.
June 26, 2016 at 8:02 AM
What stunning macros! I've never looked at milkweed in this way before; I'm glad you got that lens. Hope you're having a good weekend.
June 26, 2016 at 8:16 PM
Magnificent macro! The petals are fascinating - they look like pig ears!
June 27, 2016 at 8:47 PM
I was just in a field of milkweed last week and the aroma was unbelievable! I never thought about taking the blooms out of the field to photograph them...these are AMAZING! Not a butterfly in sight though :(
June 28, 2016 at 1:28 PM
if it smells as it looks it is heavenly for sure :)
June 29, 2016 at 1:02 PM
