A plentiful and interesting subject. The flowers weren't much this year because it was drier than usual. The seed pods were a bit more scarce. The usual display of fluff happened later than usual. But they're always entertaining.

Thanks, JAS. I spent a lot of time playing with that second plant, different angles, letting the sun spark colors and so on. Got some interesting results.

Me too, I like the second one best. Like the lighting on the fluff.

Thank you, Bambi, Realist, aubintbay and asnow. I'm hoping for better flowers this spring.

Thanks, MA and HBG. It's always nice when I get the strands in focus, too. Hard sometimes.
