Wind dispersal

Posted by jdg | 1:10 PM |

We rode the bike to the Heidelberg Project the other day and the sky was filled with some kind of wind-dispersed seed (milkweed?) poplar seeds (thanks Nancy) that were as thick as a snowstorm. I tried to capture the scene with the camera but could only get them floating past the sun with a low exposure setting.

It was incredibly beautiful. This is how plants and trees grow inside and on top of abandoned buildings, I thought, where no one remains to fight off an onslaught of invading paratroopers.
