A milkweed pod just opened and the first seeds starting to hang out ready to drop and blow away on the wind. The breeze had picked up a little and this milkweed plant was in the shade of my west fence so I needed a higher shutter speed for the motion and a higher ISO and wider aperture to make up for the dim light. The white fluff had a bit of backlighting from sun on a wall in the distance.

Puts me in mind of shibumi (Japanese): simple subdued elegance.
