You show that milkweed seeds are pretty awesome machines. The hair is the key for them being transported.

Stunning images Carletta. I have read quite a lot lately about the importance of milkweed to the butterflies, but I didn't know it was so lovely.

These are marvelous macros. I didn't realize milkweed could be so beautiful.

Ida said...

Fabulous Macros. The milkweed is very fascinating. Love how fluffy and feathery looking the seeds are.

the plant itself is kind of ugly but I've always thought the seeds floating around in the air were very pretty--like little fairies.
