Dandy in the Grass

First, thank you to Philip_H for his User Award for 'Orange Blossoms'--- Such a pleasing nod!

Second--- Narragansett is a town, a beach, a bay and a Native American tribe-- all located in the southern part of Rhode Island, USA. Thanks to those who were interested enough to ask or look it up! (We were visiting children and grands who live near Narragansett) I have NO IDEA what the THING is--just thought t had a great face!

Hopefully, there will be no particular questions about what this image is all about.....
Thanks for looking in!

The diagonal blades of grass make a nice background. Great light on the dandelion.

A super image Jenn, I love the strong lines of the grass, softened by the dandelion seed. The detail in the seed is beautiful with that lovely light playing on it. Top notch stuff.

Like the balance of this shot Jenn, terrific saturated greens and the delicacy of the seeds are well served by the sharpness of the shot.
