Milkweed Seeds, About To Fly Away!

Milkweed Seeds, About To Fly Away!
3 images above in a note!

I found these Milkweed seeds bursting out of their pod and just about to fly away. I thought it would be fun to share these two pictures with you so you can see what happens after the flowers fade! :)

Delicate and, I suspect, tricky to capture sharply before they fly away. Seen and Appreciated in:
