Hi,

as I was waiting in the front yard to greet friends coming over for dinner, the setting sun hit these dandelions just right and they appeared to be almost glowing.

They were only there because my lawnmower broke down a few days ago.

Interestingly, these flower are not considered a weed everywhere in the world. A colleague of mine from Russia told me today that it's simply considered a flower where she is comes from.

Either way, they do have a beauty all of their own. Summer finally seems to be here...

All shot with Nikon D40 and the 18-55 kit-lens.

Cheers :-)

Nice shots LahLahSr! They're not considered weeds over here but then again they are very very rare and that's probably why. Any found are quickly blown out of existence anyway. :)

How disappointing. :evil: I was looking forward to some broken down old lawnmower shots. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Love number three. To paraphrase "it's not the lens, it's the photographer that matters". 8)

Thanks for the kind words everyone :-)

Funny how this plant is considered differently in different countries. They do make excellent tea I understand, although I haven't tried it myself.

Nice close-ups angelo!! And no I don't mind at all!

While Dandelions have many different expressions and can be photographed in many different ways, I'm not sure they are versatile enough to start a "Da Dandelion of da Day"-thread like patti's for ducks though..lol.

Cheers :-)
