My entry for #amazingnature contest #3
hosted by @adalger.

The Milkweed pods have burst open and the seeds are now free to fly away.

On a breezy day it's a most fantastic and amazing sight to see.... the seeds attached to little fluffy white parachutes drifting about here and there and everywhere.

The above Milkweed pod still has some morning dew on it.
I see cute little white fluffy Milkweed critter ๐Ÿ˜Š.

Monarch caterpillars rely on milkweed plants. I hope the many seeds that drift away will germinate and keep providing for the beautiful Monarch Butterflies.

@annephilbrick it looks like beautiful fine white hair. When my desert roses go to seed they also drift with the wind but the seeds are like a small toothpick with hair.I have not seen milkweed here but we have lantana that the butterflies like.
