The Elusive Dandelion

Finally, those beautiful weeds have popped up at my house (to my husbands dismay). Christina has been posting dandelions for a few weeks now and I have just been dying for one to pop up around here. Keith came home to mow the lawn yesterday and I found only 2 in our yard. Lots of yellow dandelions but only two of these fluffy beauties. Ella had already picked on and blew it away, so I told her, "Guard this dandelion so I can shoot it. Dont let Daddy mow over it!" So I ran inside, got my camera and plopped my butt down to start shooting.

They really are interesting little things with such beautiful delicateness to them. Of course Ella kept asking me, "Can I blow on it yet? Can I blow on it yet?" What I loved about this one was that it wasnt full. It had a little hole in it already from the wind blowing on it. I loved that it wasnt perfect.

Jo! You got exactly the shot that I've wanted to capture for a long time now! Second to last, oooh, how I've been wanting to get up close and personal like that. WOW! You and that lens are one incredible team and I'm fighting the green monster right now. :o) All the photos are amazing, so dreamy and ethereal and lovely. Jo, you need an Etsy shot...these are so marketable!

OH MY goodness. Well, I don't think anyone can take another shot of a dandelion that can compare to those. Truly. I finally found some today too but now I'll have to go back and try again. Beautiful.

What great shots... I hadn't seen these before I posted by dandelion pics. I guess it's that time of year almost everywhere. Your shots show such great detail.
