Macro: Dandelion flower

Actually. although I am a lover of the much maligned dandelion–especially in May with it dots the grass with bits of sunlight–I’ve never gotten this close to one before. I never realized how intricate they are. Taken with the Lensbaby muse, 10x macro lens

    You do make them a lot more appealing than when they are filling my flowerbeds. I’ll remember to take a closer look at one later today when I’m popping them out of where they aren’t welcomed!!

    You surely have brought out the good side of the dandelion… although I will admit that I’ve always liked seeing the really green lawns sprinkled with dandelions. Never understood why people get annoyed with them.

    You have made the dreaded dandelion look lovely.

    I was on the floor shooting dandelions this week too. I’m also beyond the age of being embarrassed and my son is just old enough to become embarrassed by his Dad’s antics. My pictures didn’t come out as well as that one. When I was little the leaves used to go in the salad, and then there was dandelion and burdock tea (yuck) and I remember my childhood guinea pigs loved them too.

    Magnificent macro! I try to enjoy the beauty of the dandelion but they have really taken over a lot of the grazing and cropland around here and there is so little one can do to control them…so just enjoy their bright yellow cheer.
