Day 319 > A Fluff Piece
My 9am arrival at the milkweed patch that I'd had in mind for this morning's shoot could not have been more perfectly timed. The sun had not quite peeked over a the nearby hill leaving the patch in shade during which time I looked over the many seed pods bursting with tufts of fluff. Just as I found the one I wanted, sunlight began streaming through the branches of the oak trees on the hill and bathed the dead plants in a perfect dappled light, highlighting the color of the pods and adding a shimmer to the tufts which will soon take flight and carry the seeds away.
