Dandy Dandelions

I have what is perhaps an unhealthy fascination with dandelions. Always have. Always will (probably). So when the time came to cut the grass for the first time this year and I found that the rain from the previous days had made the ground too muddy, I found my excuse to take just a couple more pictures of the weeds in my yard.

Jurassic Weed

I decided to get down low on this one and the plays around this dandelion reminded me a bit of a prehistoric forest. I liked the blurriness and color of the background.

In The Grass

I wanted to play with some backlighting and the evening sun presented a pretty good opportunity.
