As Time  Goes By

As Time Goes By

Dandelions are the perfect reminder of the passage of time.
Less than a week ago this was a beautiful yellow flower, admittedly
growing where it shouldn't. This afternoon, the clock was
catching the rays of the sun - an hour later the delicate seeds
had been dispersed by the wind.

I like the amount of sharpness here and, as others have mentioned, the dark background works very well.

Ha! It's always fun to see someone choose the same subject matter for the day. Beautiful shot with that bright green!

Beautiful! It's rather a miracle how their seeds are spread (even if we don't particularly want them). Well done.

Dispersed all over my lawn. Grrrrr. Lovely shot though

Beautiful light on this matrix of patterns. The details are great and looks good against the dark background. V

A moment in time well caught - but it is still a weed! Mind the leaves are good in salad before they get too old.
