About the Image(s)

This week I noticed that the Butterfly Weed in my garden was reading to release the seeds. This was taken a few days ago in the early morning ambient lighting, has-held with my macro 105 lens - f16,1/160 s, ISO 1600.

What a coincidence, there's a similar photo in group 64 this month (of which I'm also a member). Also it's not dissimilar to Sandra's and my photos here in terms of composition.

I think you've done a good job here, I like it!   Posted: 10/15/2019 08:18:24

This is fascinating to study. I especially like how the tendrils of one of the seeds are wrapped around the pod tip. I envy your ability to do macro work handheld as my hands shake too much.

Great capture this month. I have no suggestions for improvement! Bravo!!! d:¬{D   Posted: 10/15/2019 17:10:16

I like the composition very much with the diagonal of the seed pod and the number of seeds you included in this shot of milkweed. I have taken many, many shots of milkweed. Its very hard to get any kind of a sharp image due to the white hairs always moving with the slightest breeze. The image to my eye is not sharp as it needs to be, there's not enough detail in the seeds and white hairs. It's pretty hard to hand hold and get milkweed sharp. Like the border. Like the great composition.   Posted: 10/20/2019 15:12:46

Janet, it seems you have captured or tied all the seeds in an easy way, beignso dificult because they move out very ease by air.
Composition is very attractive, the little upper left corner beign free with some green colors, give pleasure to scape from the white net.
Congratulations.   Posted: 10/24/2019 19:16:46
