Is that milkweed? It looks like it but I'm no expert (there could be lots of stuff that might look like it for all I know). In any case, it's a wonderful shot.

Yes that is Milkweed, trying to get out to grow another year.

I was pleased at how the sun lit up the seeds and how sharp the pod turned out since it was hand held. Even the slightest wind would blow the seeds white fluff around, so I had to wait until it was very calm to keep them in focus since that is one thing SR doesn't fix.

I agree about the light - it adds a great deal to this shot. Most of the time I'm shooting some milkweed at the botanical gardens and I'm shooting at noon. For macro its fine, but there's no way I can get the feeling your picturehas.

Taken outside, late afternoon with very intense light shining on the Milkweed silk on the seeds. The light was coming from the right of the image and I also had the advantage of the wonderful color you get in late afternoon.

There is a very small window of time that the light is available at this time of day, so it is always a rush to get what I want to do done before it is gone.
