While the Dandelion is beautiful in & of itself I do fight to remove it from my flower beds for obvious reasons!!
Have a Great Day!

Hi Jan!!
As much as I love flowers, I have never paid much attention to dandelions. Looking at your photos here, they are actually lovely little flowers! It is understandable that we don't want our yards overtaken by them, but they do have a beauty of their own.
The little beetle that you captured in the bottom photo is such a colorful little guy! These are great photographs, Jan!!
I LOVE the photos of the moss and fungi, too. It is so intricate and colorful. Pretty, too, in a fungi kind of way!!
I hope you have been well. I am trying to catch up on all I've missed while off Blog!
Take care, Jan.

when i was little i thought our yard was the prettiest because it had dandelions. how can something so bright and beautiful be considered a weed? great shots!

There is an old cow pasture, about a half a mile from us, and it is covered in dandelions. Every time I pass by it, I think to myself, "This is much, much prettier than my lawn." :) Beautiful photos - xox! Pam

I do love dandelions and your photos are gorgeous. What is that beetle?

Absolutely beautiful!
The first bright bit of Spring I had after the cold and muddy winter melt was a single dandelion in the middle of a patch of green grass. (yes it was over the septic tank.....)
As much as they are a pest, I fondly remember playing with them as a child and how nuch fun it is still to pick a seedhead and blow the seeds to the winds! :)

XXOO!!

Great pixs, but I'm still hung up on the Mossy Fungi!

Marlene said...

Dandilions are beautiful but so is Scotch Broom and both are something I do not want in my yard.

Bunny said...

You sure did capture its beauty. I also love your Madonna piece it is gorgeous. Sorry have not been to visit for a while but had a nice look around this morning now off to the gym ugh LOL.

Great shots, love the bug one. I secretly love danelions :)they are such a pretty sunshiney yellow, but not so much when they go to seed.

The moss photos are beautiful.

You have been named for an award on my blog.

Aaaw! The last one has the marking of a coccillinedae and it looks gravid!

Tanya said...

More beautiful pictures! What type of camera do you use? I remember hearing someone once say "You are a wonderful photographer. You must have a fantastic camera." To which the person answered. "You are a wonderful doctor. You must have a great scalpel." YOU are aa great photographer!
