The Milkweed pods have begun to burst and the evidence is spreading through the fields. Considering the plight of the Monarch Butterfly populations I can only wish each and every Milkweed seed success. It seems to be that Monarchs are recovering somewhat from their low here in Southern Maine a few summers ago, but every milkweed plant is a step in the right direction. The first pod is on the Kennebunk Plains, and the scatter of seeds is at Laudholm Farms…miles apart. Sony Rx10iv at 424mm equivalent. ISO 100 @ f7.1 @ 1/1000th. And 580mm equivalent.
