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's Photos
I'm hoping to use this gallery to challenge myself to learn something every day about seeing the world, photographing it, expressing myself through photos, and enjoying the works of other photographers. It will test my self-discipline. I won't even pretend that I'll take a picture every single day, but I will try to process one each day. Critiques are welcomed, and even encouraged. If you make a suggestion for altering one of my posts, to this or any other gallery, and I can act on it (short of retaking the shot), I'll try to respond and post the altered versions in a new 'Take Your Pick' gallery here: http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Photography/Take-Your-Pick/27975689_qs5bJs
