In the past couple of years I’ve spent some time photographing the dessicated flowers and seeds that are abundant in the fall and winter here. The last time I have done a few milkweed pods. I bring this in to shoot for two reasons: they are disturbed it the slightest breeze, and anything but a very smooth background is distracting when the detail is so fine. Here are three recent ones. (The first was a bit of a technical disappointment. It is the first macro I took with my new 5DIII, and I found that my computer is not sufficient for stacking order files is so great! Zerene had to shrink. A new computer is in the cards.) C & C welcome, of course.
