Nice ones Doug. They take me back to my childhood, running in the meadows, not a care in the world. Smile

When I was a kid or we were kids, we used to trick one another into shutting ones eyes and opening their mouths. Then we would stick one of those things in there, plumes and all. Be spitting plumes and tiny seeds for about a half an hour. Laughing Hey nice images there Doug, see a little spring is still hanging around up there in the tundra, even if it is archived. Very Happy

Nice shots Doug! Our little un likes to find these and pretend they're clocks. I like the story behind the plants name,Dandelion which comes from the french dent de leon meaning Lion's teeth in reference to the shape of the leaves.

Doug,

Yes, dandelions are well known, but this is a good picture. Your images are sharp and the flowers stands out well from the background. My favorite is the second one.
