Wild milkweed on the bank of Muddy Creek. Every Autumn, it's time to spread the seeds, so they explode in a most spectacular way.

I love everything about them, from their alien-ish pods, the incredible softness of the seed fluff to the amazing strength and tenacity of the seeds. The structures, shapes and textures make these pods one of my favourite subjects.
