Macro Monday: Milkweed

The milkweed is much prized by the Monarch butterfly and I am familiar with how it looks in the summer. But this past week I found it in a different state while walking on the Oak Ridges Trail.This is how it looks after surviving the Canadian winter.

And here is the seed pod after it has opened. Delicate beauty!

I just had my Samsung phone with me, on the trail, to take these photos so this may not be a true “macro” shot but I thought they were worth including in Sunshine’s Macro Monday anyway.

      It is the first time I’ve seen them. I guess the lockdown has me out on the trails much earlier in the year.

      Thank you Irene and I apologize for leaving two comments. It’s a Monday morning brain for me.

        No problem at all. I rather have a link show up twice than to lose one somewhere in the world of WordPress. 😊
