Fine view of the buds and flowers, nice aperture choice.

Isn't this the host plant of the Monarch Butterfly? I would love to have some of this in my yard. Lovely detail and depth of field, Cindy.

Thanks Ron. Yes! And I just found 4 monarch caterpillars!! First time in several years. I hope they survive. We have a lot of native milkweed. I "rescued" one caterpillar-our neighbor had mowed down his milkweed ( :evil: ) and it was clinging to a bare stem.

Perfect dof to get the sharp flower and bud detail - and the little bug. I hope your caterpillars survive so we can look forward to some Monarch BF images!
