I love it!! What a beautiful photo, so close too the droplets really add to the picture! Wow!!

So kind of you, Tasha. Thank you. I appreciate your visit.

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

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! 😀 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 😉 )

Wow, these are really intense, full of drama.
May 8, 2013 at 10:47 pm
Thank you, Seonaid! I’m glad the intensity comes through. 🙂

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 🙂

Oh I’m pleased with this assessment, thank you, Yoshi-sensei. 🙂

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 🙂 ). 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 🙂 I never noticed how different they all are…I’ll have to look more closely!

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!! 😀

Thank you, Allen. I’m glad you like them.

Thank you, Lois.
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.

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!

Thank you, Adrian. That’s very kind.

What a difference from typical shots of dandelions—these are great.
May 11, 2013 at 6:57 pm
Thank you, skadhu.

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?

Nice shots but they looks much beautiful in the sunshine
