Windblown by WaitingForTheWorms Windblown by WaitingForTheWorms
:D Dandelion seeds again or rather what was left of them. :laughing: The darn wind is whipping all trees off flowers and taking pictures is huge pain in the neck. :shakefist: When I started with this 'blowball' it was round and full of seeds. :roll: And to my chagrin it was bare in few seconds so I didn't manage to get any really clear shots. :sniff: :sniff:

:D The purple in the background is the patch of 'Ground Ivy', Glechoma hederacea. :D

You've inspired me!
I took several similar shots while sitting on the wet grass near my mom's.

Fantastic focus my dear!

The purple in the background sets this off beautifully!

Did I tell you how I carefully picked a seeded dandelion in perfect condition, shielded it and walked extremely carefully back to where I was going to photograph it in comfort in my conservatory, just got to the conservatory door, and a great gust of wind completely blew it apart!!!!!!!!!
