2 more pictures in notes above! :D

These beautiful milkweed flowers grow out in our meadow and down by our seasonal pond and remind me of clusters of miniature columbines. I'll be showing more pictures of this remarkable flower in the future, which looks similar to a badminton bird from the side! Amazing! But from the top down, they are perfect stars, dazzling in the morning sun! Thanks to Pink Kat for identifying this flower for me! I remembered SOMEONE having some beautiful pictures of this flower but I just couldn't remember who it was!! THANKS KAT!!! YOU ROCK!!! *hugs* (BTW, I added texture to the background and the buds to give this image a little more drama and bring the flowers out.)

Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actress, model, and singer, who became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s. Wikipedia: Marilyn Monroe

Great quote for that beautiful shot of the milkweed flowers! Milkweed are very interesting and pretty flowers, but I'm sad to say we don't have them around here! The psychedelic beetle is fascinating - very pretty and very creative! The insect with the droplet is also very nicely taken! A beautiful capture, which looks like it would be difficult to achieve. (I know how cooperative insects are!) LOL!
