Whorled milkweed

Whorled Milkweed Pod, Seeds, Fluff 0456

Woo-hoo for milkweed in New Mexico! I photographed this Asclepias subverticillata, or whorled milkweed, at the Rio Grande Nature Center in Albuquerque on September 24th. You can find more information about this species on a page in Southwestern Colorado Wildflowers.

If you’re interested in photography as a craft, you’ll find that points 1, 12, and 18 in About My Techniques are relevant to this photograph.
