Mac: Cool shot, I saw some thistle ready to release and there were five American Goldfinch collecting seed.

I love the way your eyes focus on beauty - never mind the camera...

ancient one said...

I like them... they have pretty yellow flowers... LOL

Craver Vii said...

...But they ARE good for photographing, aren't they?

soulbrush said...

what absolute beauty.

Beautiful. I think of them as crystals. I have shots but they are yellowish in hue. Possibly because it was evening and the sun was going down. I love the cleanness of this shot.
Love the header pic too. Beautiful with great clarity.

Lovely, especially large when all the details can be seen.

How poetic, beautiful macro.

Before I read the word "Angel" I thought what a beautiful snowflake ! (it's not really the season I know, but living in the countries we live in, it wouldn't be surprising !)

Kerri said...

Great shot! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the title!!

Dandelion clocks always make good subjects for closeups. It's a good mono conversion you've got there.

The only thing that detracts is that the centre is a little "cluttered", if u see what I mean. Some of the seed heads are a bit obscured.

But ignore me, it's a fine shot!

This is a great macro, but I hope the angels don't come anywhere near my yard!

Beautiful capture~especially enlarged~ but as clever as your title is~ & I suppose if you think about it they do look like little Angels floating by...but I have never thought of them as little Angels~not when I know how hard they are to keep out of my garden & yard~but I will have to smile now everytime I pull a dandelion from my yard, or see one of the seed's floating by!! :) And I will think of you Imac & your beautiful capture!
