Dandelions Continued

Here's two more dandelions for your viewing pleasure.




Neither of these are from the same place as the flagship dandelion of my blog (see this post). I really like the top one, that was taken in the woods behind my house. As for the bottom one, I like it, but there's something unsettling about it...I think it's something about the colors on the inside.

Oh yeah! Here's another.


This one's a little bit older than the other two, but it's still a dandelion. Actually.....I'm not so sure about that. You can't really tell from this picture, but this 'dandelion' is about the size of my fist, maybe 5 inches or so in diameter. I have no idea why these are so huge; they have a yellow flower just like a dandelion, and then turn into this puff ball. They're also slightly more rugged looking, if that makes any sense.

Around where I live I've actually found several different sizes of dandelions, normal everyday yard ones, these giant ones, and then little tiny ones too (probably about 1cm in diameter).

Also, I noticed that all of my dandelions are positioned in the left of the photo...I did that because I think it looks better than being on the right, but I wonder why that looks better?

Has anyone else seen giant dandelions like this?

  2. I like the top one, but I do prefer the second one, for the fact that it is kind of unsettling.

  8. Wow, I might have to use these as a seasonal wallpaper for my computer, if you don't mind. Your photos are amazing! And I wonder why they look better on the left, I tried to imagine them on the right but it wasn't the same effect.

  10. Nice, random fact but the name dandelion is a corruption of the French 'dent de lion', which means "lion's tooth".
