Nature's menorah

Swamp milkweed with morning sun
This picture reminds me of a menorah, with the milkweed pods representing tongues of fire, and the sun lit trees in the background strengthening the fire imagery.

We are midway through the Festival of Lights which is also known as Hanukkah.  This festival is represented by the menorah, a candle holder with 9 branches.


  1. I clicked over from On Being, where I first saw this photo. How you describe it is beautiful. It's a lovely shot!
