I'm fairly sure this is a milkweed plant.
Most plants are dead in the fall here (now), but interesting seeds are still stuck to them.

It is a milkweed pod. Lovely sign of autumn.

Lovely capture, but I'd play with the cropping to push it off center. There are some nice features in the background that will help enhance the image.

In fact, looking at this some more it might work well as a square print

That's a really great photo. Love the colours, and it is full of detail just where it needs to be
