gorgeous! V

Barbara McMahon replied:

Thank you so much Joan!

Wonderful capture of a very sensual subject. Your picture has so much going on in such a simple subject. Very well done Barbara. I enjoyed reading the techy stuff too as this plant has fascinated me for a long time. I love it that the monarch butterfly find it so appealing. Their predilection for milkweed causes them to have an unpleasant taste to birds. There are other species of butterlies who mimic the monarch for their own safety from avian predators. I personally have eaten milkweed when the pods are still green. They make a tasty vegetable. Thanks for this very lovely picture. voted, favorite and promoted as PIF in CFC group

Barbara McMahon replied:

Thank you William for your wonderful comment and compliment!! I had no idea the green pods were edible. I'll do a bit of research on which species are edible and give it a try next year. I grew up with milkweed on the farm and now live near a large conservation area with trails and love seeing them as they begin to explode. The camera did the work although the photographer's knees don't like to cooperate at such a low level. Time for a half decent tripod!

Love this image, v5 PIF4.

Barbara McMahon replied:

The beach towel is really just for laying on inasmuch as it is too big and heavy to put around your body, which is just fine. The artwork in it is beautiful. I can't wait to use it.

July 28th, 2018

Love the beautiful colours and tropical feel of this towel. I'm so looking forward to taking it on holidays with me.

July 27th, 2018

I love my purchase of this beautiful work of art!Will be purchesing more of this wonderful artists work in the future.

July 22nd, 2018

I bought this as a gift. I love it! Hope the receiver loves it too!

July 19th, 2018

Wow - I didn't realise it was going to be that big! It's a gift for a young member of the family - I think he'll be thrilled as he's a tractor fanatic at 6 years old. A practical gift too. The towel has a smoother upper side so it'll be more comfortable to sit on at the beach. It seems to have a thick absorbent power so no usual skinny beach towel.

very nice, love the colour not keen on the white tastle border but i like it, i'm going to use it as blanket for my hamock,

Artist's Description

The delicate milkweed seeds still enchant me as they did when I was a child. Asclepias L. (1753), the milkweeds, is a genus of herbaceous perennial, dicotyledonous plants that contains over 140 known species. It previously belonged to the family Asclepiadaceae, but this is now classified as the subfamily Asclepiadoideae of the dogbane family Apocynaceae. 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. Carl Linnaeus named the genus after Asclepius, the Greek god of healing, because of the many folk-medicinal uses for the milkweed plants. Pollination in this genus is accomplished in an unusual manner. Pollen is grouped into complex structures called pollinia (or "pollen sacs"), rather than being individual grains or tetrads, as is typical for most plants. The feet or mouthparts of flower visiting insects such as bees, wasps and butterflies, slip into one of the f...

About Barbara McMahon

Barbara McMahon is an artist that paints and photographs the beauty, the humanity and the unseen moments on this planet with a passion that is deeply rooted within her psyche. From an early age, Barbara felt and saw what seemed unnoticed by others. Usually inspired by something she has witnessed in nature or by the emotions evoked by music or human and animal connection, Barbara is compelled to capture that scene with a passion and desire to share with as many people as possible.

Without a telephoto lens she is often intimately and at times, dangerously close to her...
