The obligatory seasonal macro shot ;-)
Dandelions are such incredible things. First of all you've got the beautiful vivid yellow flower (with it's pollen tendrils, as seen a few days ago). Then it transorms itself into one of the most elegant and efficient seed dispensing machines known to man - so delicate, and intricate and fragile. And as if that weren't enough, it also contributes to the greatest fizzy drink in existence: Dandelion & Burdock.
Apparently there have been over 250 different apomictic microspecies of dandelion recorded in the British Isles alone.

A weed? I think not! I rest my case.
