Thank you, Virgilio, for your kinds words.

Beautifully shot Melanie. I’m not familiar with milkweed, what an exquisite seed head.

Thank you, Adrian. Milkweed takes many different forms throughout its life cycle. I find it a fascinating plant, and such a pleasure to photograph.

It’s almost nature’s super natural creation !
And to discover it, then photographed it in this
phenomenal way was also incredible too !
This must be a Buddhist’s Karmic encounter.
It’s a far beyond of emotional “Beautiful” but
Philosophical Evidence to make mouth shut.

Wow, I am completely humbled by your comment. I felt very fortunate to come upon the milkweed in this particular stage. What a fascinating plant it is! It reveals itself in such unexpected and wonderful ways.

Like a beautiful dancer Melanie. Fantastic

Thank you so much, Helen. There is a dancing movement about this plant; I can see that. Milkweed, in all its various stages, leaves me with so many different impressions.

Fantastic capture, love the details!

Thank you, David, for your visit, and for your nice words.

That’s great perspective and an excellent macro shot!

Thanks! There is always so much I want to get into an image with milkweed (it offers so many great textures), but I’m rarely satisfied with the results. I moved all around this this plant until I landed on this perspective.

I’ve never seen milkweed before – it looks like some kind of ritual object. Wonderful shot.

Milkweed is such a fascinating plant! It almost looks different from one day to the next! It’s really quite stunning the different forms it takes.

My first reaction was “Lemony has taken a unique wedding portrait”. 🙂 Beautiful composition.

Oh yes me too! Like an expectant bride in all her finery. What’s the latin name for milkweed Lemony, do you know?
December 9, 2012 at 4:17 pm
What a lovely description, Sarah. I think the latin name is: Asclepias syriaca. You’ll be astonished to see how this plant transforms over the course of the season.

No se que planta es, pero es una preciosidad, parece un precioso vestido, ¡maravillosa toma Lemony!!

Thank you! I can see what you mean. It does look like a dress. It’s amazing how milkweed can have such a variety of appearances.

Thank you, mfr! So glad you like it.

This is a beautifully composed and executed photograph! One of my favorites from your portfolio!
December 9, 2012 at 11:22 pm
You know I almost didn’t post this one!! That’s the third one where I felt the image was a bit too close to me somehow (or, rather, that I was a bit too close to it) and that my own connection to it was affecting my judgment about its quality, and then you offer such a generous comment. Thank you, George!

Very pretty…and peculiar…in an interesting way….
December 10, 2012 at 3:52 am
I thought of a bridal gown too when I first looked at it. It is a lovely photograph!

The detail here is really great.
