Such a simple thing, the dandelion . Some only see it as a weed to be pulled and discarded. If only they would look a bit closer and see the beauty it holds.

Here are some of the results I had while trying to show its beautiful delicate , wispy nature.

Your nits, crits , comments and suggestions are always welcomed and appreciated.

Thank you for looking. I hope you enjoy my vision of the dandelion.


On technical side for those interested - 200mm micro with 6T close up lens. 2 speed lights, one on camera and one off camera. Both lights diffused with the MagMod Magsphere . I really am very pleased with how if diffuses the light .
Focus stacked using Zerene.

It is a pollen source of major importance for Honeybees and other insects early in the season. It also provides them with nectar, although how much is rather variable.

Very much Birdie interpretations and delightful.
