Though a pesky weed, the seedheads of dandelions are like floating helicopters. They are beautiful in sunlight. Isn't God all around us.

At first I thought this was a peacock's tail, then I put on my glasses!
For being such lawn invaders, they surely make for a lovely picture.

We have blooming dandelions now but so far they have not yet gone to seed. We used to eat the leaves if gathered before the plants bloomed. And we made a meal out of them and mom treated them with vinegar and bacon. Wow. I can still remember how good that was -- during the war years over here, some food was rationed.

I think I prefer to think of it as a cluster of angels. But either way it is absolutely beautiful.

If they be angels, they're fallen ones for sure. At least when they threaten my lawn, anyway. Sharp details, Imac.

I too thought I was looking at a peacock until I enlarged it - great shot with great detail.

Fantastic dandelion shot. This is the way I prefer them; as a gorgeous image to look at. Looking at them in the lawn is a different thing...
