At last!

 

On my recent wanders, I have seen loads of dandelion seed heads, but I’m never happy with the results – here’s one from the other day when the focussing mode went awry

 

Finally, today, I got an image of a seed head that I’m reasonably pleased with…sharper than I have previously managed, you can see the detail – Yay! I can tick that one off my to do list!!

  1. Nicely done, Sue. Did you blow on it afterwards? I can never resist that. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I know what you mean, I struggle. A friend of mine just yesterday bent down with her point and shoot, dead overhead and got a great shot that I would have been very proud of. May be we try to hard 😁

  3. Nice. You’re right, they’re omnipresent, but not the easiest to get on their best side.

  4. Very nice, Sue! I just knocked a few over mowing the lawn.

  5. Yes, nice one 🙂 🙂

  6. Jack would love to grow dandelions in the garden, but we never see them over here. Second shot is like fairies little parachutes, very nice detail

  7. They are awfully difficult to photograph! I have stopped trying now after getting one or two shots I was happy with! Plenty in my lawn but as Andrew says, too low to get down to. The best ones are those growing high up in the Cornish hedges! Eye level 😁
