Since we have made it through the winter solstice and the days are lengthening, I thought it might be a good time to plant some seeds for spring. (Please note: this might be “false dandelion.” Not sure if it is good for salads like the “true” stuff. Second shot below plus color shots.)
(Just a weird enough angle, where I didn’t feel comfortable with either a portrait or landscape orientation.)

Very nice! Composition, exposure, and detail all creating very nice and interesting shots. I normally prefer color but I like the B&W shots as much as the color. To me the B&W gives the center remains of the blossom and the actual seeds an insect like vibe.
Thanks, David. I tend to favor color myself but I thought the black and white made just the parts you mentioned stand out more. I do wish I could have had a little more negative space to work with but it was a pretty tight fit on the old reverse lens set up this time.
