This afternoon I was taking photos in the back and front yards. When I saw this lone dandelion seed head in the front yard, I started on a “photo study” taking shots from all sorts of angles.
It was pretty doggone breezy out and I had to raise the ISO to 400, and even then the shutter speed was only 1/20 of a second. The little seeds were disappearing at a slow rate with 1 or 2 that were detached, but hadn’t blown away yet. When I first noticed it earlier this morning it was completely covered in little seeds.
