Pods of fall

I’m enchanted with the delicate lightness of the milkweed seeds as the breeze pulls them out of their pods each day under the warm sunlight of mid-November days. I’m setting my camera to fully automatic, letting the Fujifilm manage exposure details while I manage subject composition using its tilting LCD screen. I love how the sunlight reflects off each thread of puff attached to each seed. The individual floating seeds make me think of the woodsprite seeds from the movie Avatar. I’m sure these Milkweed seeds provided inspiration for that storyline.
