SkyWatch Friday

These were taken at Big Meadows along the Skyline Drive. The meadow was covered with milkweed pods.

Fishing Guy corrected me on my identification, first described by me as a Milkseed pod. Ups! No, it is a Milkweed. Thank you FG.

Craver Vii has also offered another identification, he says it looks like Audrey from The Little Shop of Horrors. Thanks for another good chuckle Craver.
Beautiful blue skies.
