Glad you like it Debra. I hesitate a lot to present the shot. Finaly did. Hope you have look at it with the enlarge option. Colours and contrast is much better.

A beautiful image Yves. The autumn colours provide such a nice background and the detail on the milkweed fibers and asters is spot on. I would welcome a view like this in lieu of all the snow we've had this winter..

Thank you for the comment Heather. The photographer made a point to take the shot to please the philosopher in me that was seduced by the meaningful frame.

Beautiful image and story Yves. I really like the soft colour of the asters and the silky fibers of the milkweed. The foreground elements stand out nicely from the muted colours in the background. Well done.

Milkweed is my meaningful emblem for death and rebirth. The dead ones from last year are still interesting in the field's blossoms of july. Their well engeneered seeds save the essence of it and can fly it far away for the rebirth in a new life. The pink aster is the last one flower that accompany the milkweed in the autumn's dying nature.
