Macros super interessantes!
A primeira foto é muito instigante, pensei que era um animal marítimo.
Super original.

Brilliant interpretation. It doesn't get much more ephemeral than seeds.

What lovely photos of the milkweed shimmering in the sun! Some farmers are now farming milkweed in Quebec as they can use it to clean up oil spills. The fields must smell glorious when they are in bloom.
