I am hard pressed to find a suitable way to express how beautiful this image is of the seeds and their parachutes...all about to make their epic voyage.
Nigel Clack: That is a compliment I like! Cheers Ray.

nig, i missed posting on your dandelion with the few little seeds blowing away and I was "blown away" by it, but this one is even more so...

I've tried to take a photograph of dandelion seeds and parachutes like this for years, and could not/can not.

You've catch the delicacy of those little whisps and the symmetry so well.

I am marking yours as a likey as something to which I should aspire. Thanks.
Nigel Clack: Kathryn you say the nicest things, but you shouldn't say can not! It was only hand held, I was just lucky enough to see it and I darkened some edges. You are well capablewink
This almost seems to jump out at you - lovely shot.
Nigel Clack: Hope it didnt' make you jumpwink
