Wow, beautiful macro! I love that you can see the little seeds blowing away in such detail.

A pincushion, then a geodome. What detail!

Jane said...

That first photo is just fabulous! I cannot photograph dandelion clocks to save my life, let alone catch one blowing apart like this. Great capture!

Its neat how it looks like a pincushion when the seeds are gone.

Ferd said...

I love the background, and a fresh look at a familiar subject.
Super shots!
They blow me away! :-)

Excellent Carletta. I remember blowing on these wish flowers when I was a kid. Now I watch my granddaughters blow their wishes.

We may grumble at them, but this final farewell fireworks of the dandelion is worth a bit of bother.

Great shots--I just got a new camera, but it can't take shots like that - darn!!! Very nice. Mickie :)

Carletta, these are just beautiful. You captured the first one at the perfect moment! I love the way the seeds are falling away from it.

Thank you so much for sharing these at The Creative Exchange this week.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

A super macro shot. Everything in focus...I find that difficult.

JunieRose2005 said...

WOW!! That first shot is fantastic!!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

MAGIC! Makes me think of childhood and how something as "simple" as a dandelion pod could keep us happy for hours. And how (with the help of your camera) we can go back to that time. Just lovely.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Your first photo is amazing! I love how you caught the action.

Katy Noelle said...

This is wonderful. Absolutely wonderful! It's so clear and, with the seeds blowing away - it's outside of the box - not what we normally see! =]
