Post challenge:
Wow I never expected this to do this well when I first submitted it, still a low score to be number 6. I have bested my highest finish of 7th.

I was walking along our drive the other day to get mail and the wind was gusting. I saw this poor little milkweed plant battling the wind, it was actually horizontal like this because of the wind and the two or three ones hanging on were spinning around, so no I didnt tie them together, that "knot" was from them twirling around.

Wow! Perfect for the challenge. A dynamic image with motion and grace. B&W was a brilliant choice. We've seen a lot of milkweed pods of late ... hope they're not being overdone.

Did you tie them together? If so I appreciate the effort. Nice shot. Very sharp foreground and good shallow DOF.
