Milkweed rainbows

I have developed the habit of carrying my camera with me lately. I am glad I had it yesterday when I took the dog for a walk. We were in an open field and I noticed the milkweed.I remember how important it is for the Monarch Butterfly. The sun caught the delicate strands and on closer inspection, I could see the tiny rainbows reflected there. Each seed, so delicate, poised waiting for the slightest breeze to lift it and give it wings.

Delicate tiny rainbows touch the soft strands.

Each seed is ready for the slightest breeze to give it flight.

soft, delicate wings for the seed.
