Quality macro work, as usual, Brian, but I particularly like the curve and softness of the departing seedheads, and the way the dandelion head acts as a perch or podium for the acrobatic ladybird.
It looks as if the ladybird is helping to disperse the seeds, and I think the whole image is really quite animated.

Excellent interesting macro - plenty to see in this image. Great detail in the ladybird and love the seeds floating away in the distance adding great depth of field.

Top notch shot, the image so crisp and sharp and so well timed to capture the two or three seeds ready for the off.

Wonderful timing, detail and composition, Brian. Pin sharp with superb textures and colours and well isolated by the rich, clean bg tones. This image has real life and I love the title too.

INCREDIBLE detail and clarity, Brian. Always astounds me.

This one has the added magical element of some seeds in flight. And yet the ladybird and seedhead are pin sharp!

Bravo Smile
