i got a little obsessed with photographing these dandelions one day. sometimes it’s hard to find a fully intact one because they’re just so fragile. what i love is how intricate they are – so many tiny fine pieces that fit together to make a beautiful ball. getting up close with the macro made me realise that they actually have hundreds of little stars all over- and as stars are one of my most favourite things i now love dandelions even more!
really, they are just a bit clever, and so pretty. which is contrary to what most people think, especially since they are regarded as a weed (but have great health benefits!)
“the miracles of nature do not seem miracles because they are so common. if no one had ever seen a flower, even a dandelion would be the most startling event in the world.”
if you see one don’t forget to blow it and make a wish!
