10/366: Seedhead From Above

10/366: Seedhead From Above
Using a macro lens reveals a fascinating new perspective, and will often surprise you with these fresh views. How common, boring and ugly dandilions are...to most people, anyway. Detested, yanked out, and scorned, these enemies to the lawn perfectionist are actually quite beautiful, when seen through a macro lens. I quickly fell in love with these flowers, and all others which make these seedheads of parachutes. This was a picture I took in May of 2012, to show how exquisitely perfect these lovely seedheads truly are.

Explored on January 10, 2012. Highest placement, #10.

I can only agree..not only the seed heads, the flowers photographed with the macro lens from the side look entirely different.

I really admire this photograph; loathsome refers only to the zillion (rounding it off) of these I have dug out of a lawn, or manually pulled, or poisoned with Monsanto's flagship product.
It was a treat and a delight seeing your name commenting on one of my offerings! I am proud and honored ....

You are awesome! I have always loved your sense of humor, it never fails to get a fit of cackles out of me! :D I can totally picture you mumbling atrocities at the unfortunate dandelions that dared pop up out of your lawn! :D :D

And...you will see more of me as time goes on. Got some projects to finish up, but then I'll be making rounds again. I really miss you and everyone here! *big hugs*
