  2. Very compelling, Melanie…the saturated seedheads remind me of a wet cat, somehow…..

    • Thank you, Scott. Yes, I can see what you mean… a siamese cat, maybe? ๐Ÿ™‚

      • You’re welcome…and yes, the Siamese would be the perfect coloring….

  3. Wonderful macros. So pretty in the rain. The second one reminds me of the eye. I like it a lot. Almost like the shapes that I see sometimes when my brain misfires.

    • Yes, yes… they are indeed eyes! ๐Ÿ˜€ I love it when you see what I see (although here, it would have been nicer for us both if it had only been in a figurative sense ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

  4. Wow, these are really intense, full of drama.

    • Thank you, Seonaid! I’m glad the intensity comes through. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. After seeing thousands of dreamy fantasy kind of dandelion
    seed-pod photos, this crisp, hard-core (may be because of
    the contrast of clear white and wet dark brown, on top of clean sharp image)
    photo looks very fresh. I like your samurai like straight approach ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh I’m pleased with this assessment, thank you, Yoshi-sensei. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. What an amazing headdress these weeds wear. Beautifully captured.

    • Thank you, Ogee (do you have a preference for how people refer to you, by the way; I’ve been meaning to ask ๐Ÿ™‚ ). I’m always so delighted by the different “personalities” I encounter in dandelions and their seed heads.

      • Ogee is a term friends use – so you can use Ogee ๐Ÿ™‚ I never noticed how different they all are…I’ll have to look more closely!

  8. The first is the best. Wonderful stuff, Melanie!

    • Thank you, Gary. It seemed I couldn’t wait for dandelion season, and now they’re everywhere in all their shapes and stages!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Nice macros!

    May 9, 2013 at 10:16 am

  10. Wonderful details.

  11. wow, what a powerful series – the first one seems to echo ‘my other eye’ – the second is very poetic – the third adds some drama – excellent !

    May 9, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    • Thank you so much, Katrien. You’re exactly right about the “echo” you see. I love what you’ve picked up from each image.

      May 9, 2013 at 7:42 pm

  12. I never realised they held onto water like that. The dandelion seems to almost be luxuriating in it. Fascinating shots again – I really like seeing the world through your lens.

    May 9, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    • Yes, they’re fascinating weeds these dandelions, in all their forms. The seed heads are particularly interesting to me. Thank you for your nice words, Richard!

  13. Superb Lemony!

    May 9, 2013 at 8:21 pm

  14. Beautiful!

    May 9, 2013 at 11:32 pm

  15. What a difference from typical shots of dandelionsโ€”these are great.

    May 11, 2013 at 6:57 pm

  16. Just like those fireworks that burst in the sky. Gorgeous and dramatic. Actually I just learned recently that dandelions in the US are European alien invaders but that you do have a native one – which kind is this?

    May 11, 2013 at 10:04 pm

  17. Nice shots but they looks much beautiful in the sunshine
