Summer Puffball

This is commonly known as a weed, though its flower is quite attractive. It's a dandelion and blooms bright yellow in yards across America in the spring and summer. When the flower dies, it turns into this puffball of seeds, which scatter and create new little yellow flower plants in yards across America. This is my first attempt at a super macro shot.

I love dandelions! What kind of camera are you using lately? Loving your photos :D

It's a Canon something-or-other (I'm SO not tech-y), but it's not mine. :( My husband brings it home from work sometimes on the weekends so I can play with it. :)
