Dandelion #4

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but when you start looking at dandelions up close, you begin to see (or “imagine,” if you insist) that they have different “personalities.”  There are “the divas,” “the eccentrics,” “the introverts,” “the lunatics,” … and on and on.  And each one dies in a way reflective of the nature with which it lived. Or so I like to pretend, at least, when I take their portraits.

This one makes me smile.  I think it is fairly stubborn. Maybe “head-strong” would be a good description.

  1. Reminds me of Jack Nicholson in The Shining LOL 😛 I wonder where that came from!?

  2. Stop teasing the little guy. I just think he has a serious case of bed-head! 🙂

  3. It always surprises me how really fleeting the photogenic moments are. When they’re in this stage, if a breeze comes up (not even a significant wind), most of the tenacious seeds can be off on their way within mere minutes. It takes dedication and persistent observation to catch them at their peak. Again, compliments!

  4. I’m definitely going to look at dandelions differently from here on out and try to see if I detect personalities 🙂
    The first impression I got from this one was “mad professor hairdo”

  5. I love dandelions! They are so sunny and happy looking. I have just started a poetry blog here on WordPress in case you have time to look? Today’s post is about being in the moment and features a pic of me lying in a dandelion meadow! Happy Monday, Sam 🙂

  8. I’m enjoying scrolling through your flower photographs, and this one is particularly striking – it’s that group of seeds still attached at the top – keeps things energized!

    • Thank you so much for your recent visit, Lynn, and for your kind words. I just took a moment for a brief visit to your blog and see there is so much to discover. I will have to make a point of spending more time there. I see that we are both fans of the Lumix. 🙂
