Dandelion glow

By helenlinda
Walking to school yesterday I noticed huge numbers of dandelions just crying out to be photographed. When I eventually left work, the wind had blown most of them away, but I got a few shots.
I was amazed at how this glow appeared in this image when opening in levels, and have done very little it in order to keep that as the focus.
If anyone else wants to play with the background "noise" they can as I've uploaded
it with an M
Thanks for looking

It's like a forest in miniature in there! A little world in microcosm.
