I think I like this the best of your dandelion shots, Jenn. The 'head' is so detailed and sharp, whilst the remaining seedlings are slightly out of focus. A very cleverly captured shot. And I've said it before, but you find fascinating shots that others (including me) would never notice.
Regards, Ronnie.

Man...I gotta exercise. Normally after a FOOF! I'd get most of 'em off. Slackin' Wink

Jennnn...this is your best dandelion image ever. The moment I saw it I zipped past your descrip to see if it'd got at least an HC. Nada. Puhhh. Never mind, you got a UA.

The detail is mind-boggling and everything's so balanced. Stupendous...
