Dandelion (Taraxacum)

We are currently plagued with Dandelions in various stages of Flower & Seed. Whilst it is indeed true that Dandelions are considered by many to be an unwanted weed, there are many uses for both the flower & foliage, from eating & wine making right the way through to medicinal drinks & tonics for our kidneys & liver. For us photographers, there are amazing hidden details that only become apparent under close examination...so the next time you see one...remember some of the amazing properties that this often cursed at little guy has to offer.

 

Photo Information: Shot with a Nikon D7000 & Tokina 100mm f/2.8 macro @ f16 - 1/200th - ISO200 - Illumination is with an SB-900 used as wireless commander for an SB-700 fired through a Lastolite Ezybox at 1/4 power. Black backdrop is Black foamcore.
