Like Butterflies, 2010

butterfly weed seeds

Like Butterflies

Seeds from butterfly weed emerge from newly-opened pods, ready to have the wind carry their seeds all over this field.

The orange beetles are Milkweed Beetles of some sort, I just couldn’t ignore them.

    see how some of yours still have the green and reddish color on them well i just picked 2 of them like that
    i had to pick them before the bugs ate them so i did im hoping they will sprout out now or when i start to plant them
    oh well i just took a look at them in the pod and they all look brown so i guess there good the pod busted open
    when it was sitting on my desk i didn’t notice that till now i guess they where done growing anyways then sens they busted
