I've never before considered the dandelion puff as a photography subject, not until 365. Having seen so many creative and wonderful images, I've of course been inspired to give the subject matter a try. While I took a number of pictures this morning, including a bunch with the sun coming up just behind the ethereal seeds, I've chosen this one because it's my very first dandelion picture.

P.S. I can hardly believe it but this picture went on to become my first-ever in a week's Top Twenty. Thank you so very much to all who contributed to making this happen.
Denise this is beautiful, such a great macro and beautiful lighting. fAV

Doesn't that center remind you of a little golf ball? Unbelievable clarity and detail to your dandelion, Denise. This is a slightly different approach (not easy as there are so many dandelion shots going) or pov and I love it! You've focused it so well and still managed to keep the lightness on the outside with its detail. A really special dandelion shot.

Love your POV, it is a different pov to what most are done, and it works really well, focus and DOF spot on!! fav.

Not much I can say here except this is spectacular! The detail is gorgeous. You make macro photography look like it comes very naturally to you. I can see why this shot won hands down over lilacs.

I think it's great -- all the different textures and color in it, but it makes a 'whole' that shows different phases of the dandelion's life.

The detail of this dandelion is incredible!
May 19th, 2014  
This is awesome, Denise! (We may not have mountains, but there's no shortage of *these* in our state of Illinois!) 365 certainly changed the way I see the world around me and I have photographed dandelions (recently), which I never would have thought to do 4 years ago!
May 19th, 2014  
Woooow......you've turned a weed into a beautiful flower! Congrats Denise! I too never looked at a dandelion the same since starting 365......now I'm anxiously awaiting our dandelions to come out so I can give it a try!
Great macro shot and detail. Big Fav
