I have debated for months whether to upload this so here it is.

I just saw the death of this plant and the rebirth through the blowing seeds.

I hope it appeals to a few.

I may not be around for a couple of days.

A brilliant macro/close-up photograph Gary which captures the beauty, colour, and superb details in this gorgeous wilting Dandelion so very, very well, a really refreshing piece. "Not an image which should be kept tucked away"

Super sharp and surrounded by soft seed heads. The burnished golden sheen on the seeds looks great. No debate, Gary.
