Thanks, snooker! I love it! It takes some nice close-ups but its still a point-and-shoot. I still haven't read the manual. Can you believe it? I know if I did I would learn lots and then maybe wouldn't be deleting so many shots. Ank, yes, Chickie and my avatars are very similar. She'd make a fine sister! Lorna, no milkweeds over there in the UK? I will have to bring some seeds over and scatter them abroad. Then everyone would hate me for the rest of my life, thank you for commenting, Celeste.
Great shot LJ :)
Thanks for explaining and I like the way you complement each other, it's very nice. The avatars are difficult to keep apart. You could be sisters. Love it.
Interesting looking plant, and thanks for explaining its name, as like texasstar, I would have had to ask!
Nice blue shadows. You are doing well with that camera, lj.
You're welcome, lyndee.
Thank you LJ and chickie for explaining what I couldn't. I just knew they had what look like milk in them. :)
I know that Monarch Butterflies like them. What typos?
They secrete a white milky sap kinda like when you break off a dandelion stem.
Milkweed is named for its milky juice, which contains alkaloids, latex, and several other complex compounds including cardenolides. Some species are known to be toxic. Yikes!
They do have milk in them Tex.
Why do they call it milkweed? I don't see any milk...
It must be contagious lyndee. I've been doing it every night! LOL
Good Grief, do I sound like I'm drunk or what???? Two mistakes in one short sentence!!!
