Wonderful detail on the seeds and on some filaments that really seem to shine giving a touch of lightness to the whole composition.

A lovely glow in the milkweed silk really makes this fine composition work. Amazing what you get out of this simple plant1

Nice composition and use of depth of field to draw your attention to the nearest seed while still keeping a nice line. Milkweed pods offer a lot of variety and this one is excellent.
