133/366: Details of a Dandilion Seed Head

133/366: Details of a Dandilion Seed Head
As kids, a favorite thing we all used to do was finding dandelion seed heads, making a wish, and blowing the seeds off into with wind. Now that we are adults, have you ever stopped to take a close look at these? Such delicate details, such a perfect design for floating on the wind to far-flung destinations. Such an elegant fom. And, as you can see here, just a pair of seed "parachutes" left on a seedhead gives you a chance to see that the fluffy ball to the right is made up of about 100 individual seeds, which are connected to their wind-catching parachutes. Be sure to click on this image to get a bigger view! :)

Oh Janet - what a glorious picture - I just love it. Yes and 100 of those delightful helicopters make 100 more plants LOL. I can't wait to get a better camera so I can hopefully take my own photos - though not as good as you do.

I didn't grow up where dandelions existed, my first experience was as an adult, and I couldn't believe how beautiful they are and how much people hated to have them around. Awesome picture!!

Looks magnificent on the dark background Janet. It's sad that something so beautiful is considered a weed.

(When I was a kid I was always warned that picking dandelions would make you wet the bed)!!

Dandelion extract is actually a diuretic.. but only when made as an extract.. but thats where the saying comes about
