These are milkweed seeds which are wind-borne on silken parachutes. The seeds are held in pods which burst (or dehisce) and are released to the wind, as is happening here. K100D and Promaster 100mm macro. Comments welcome.

There is nature and a careful observer/photographer in action. Very nice.

This looks like a wonderfully well-timedshot! I look forward to viewing at homeon my good monitor, instead of my crappy work laptop.

penolta,

Swirling, happy explosion. What donĀ“t they do to reproduce themselves. Nice to have been there when it happened

Thanks all for the kind words.

The aphids were a distraction, Bill, as was the yellow leaf, but I takes 'em as I sees 'em.
