All ready for takeoff, I see. Looks like a milkweedy plant. There's more order in the seeds than I realized.

This is just beautiful to watch, it looks like hair. The light and post processing works well too.

I just saw some milk weed up north...What lense did you use? I keep expecting one of the seeds to float off....

So pretty. I like the dark background. This is milkweed, right? I've never seen it, we don't have it in Newfoundland. I like the detail of the seed heads.
