D183-2013 Swamp milkweed, beautiful in bud and blossom. Asclepias incarnata.
Rivaled only by the brilliant orange butterflyweed among Asclepias species, in my mind. The colors really are this vivid seen live.

Huge thanks to all who took time to look at and comment on yesterday's post of the clouds over Kent Lake. I'm a bit of a nut about clouds, but that was my first cloud picture posted in the Dailies. So happy you liked it! - arctangent
I've divided my 2013 DailyPhotos posts into three galleries, each of which covers a period of four months. And I've resorted each one in ascending rather than descending order of upload or posting date.
