Thought you were referring to my Kitchen for a moment, the bomb bit, nicely done Mrs, just the one extension tube, see what you mean if you put all three on, you'd probably be able to see the beginning of time.

I have always found dandelions to be rather beautiful.....they are such "bombastic" and exuberant flowers.

Dandelions are a bugger.. it's a taproot that goes down almost to the centre of the Earth. Weedkiller is the only way, or they just keep growing back. A few are OK, but they don't know when to stop.

But I like your photo of the bloody thing GrinGrin

You are using your new equipment so well Diane. Keep at it. A large garden fork is very good for Dandelions but that can wait until you are fit.

Excellent use of the extension tubes.

Excellent work Diane. I'm afraid I have to use the tripod on almost everything these days, camera shake is the bane of my life, unless I up the ISO and have a large aperture.
