They look a bit like firework displays.
Especially the first photo.
Awesome...and I mean AWESOME photos!Yup, just what Laura shared...they look like a firework display!And I love the two different colors of each photo.REALLY nice!!!!X
Thanks. The first one is the natural color of the plant when the sun shines through it.
very cool...that first one, though a flower, looks like fireworks....cool shots
I loved the little starbursts in it.
wow, quite amazing, and talented. Hello Secret Agent. I managed to track you from Brian's.
Well, thank you. I'll be around to visit.
That could scare someone with hay fever. I would be ok. Nature does offer good symmetries.
Do many people have an allergy to salsify?
I will go off and google wild salsify while you carry on......p.s. beautiful pic, but I agree about the hay fever bit, I can almost feel a sneeze coming just looking at this :)
To me they look like something you'd want to brush your face against.
Oh ms. Photographer: very very nice. What a great feeling both of these invoked in me Lovekj
Why thank you, kj!
I did sneeze, and it was not from hay fever...I love both photos. Brilliant.
Very lovely photos. Hoping you have got things done!!!!!!Maggie xNuts in May
Much of what I was catching up on was blog-reading, and I did. :-)
I've never heard of it, but I like it!
I had to google it by entering "giant dandelions.:
Looks like fireworks.
Glad you put a name I could google. Nice pics, do you have a close-up lens?
Believe it or not, I took those with my phone. It takes pretty decent close-ups. I had the camera lens right up against it.
Is that like a dandelion? Pretty cool pictures.
It's related, but much bigger. Also called oyster plant.
gorgeous lighting on that top one.
