It might be a weed, but it's so doggone cheerful! And happy to be 'blooming where it's planted!'

Congratulations Dave, well done!

since this is one of the earliest colors we see in spring, I don't have the heart to pull them either. You made the lowly dandelion look even prettier! Beautiful shot, Dave.

I couldn' believe it was a Dandelion! Your terrific capture highlights it in all it's glory, Dave! Lovely light and color. I agree with the many commentors above who sing this flower's praises. Finches, among others, also love it for it's seed. 10 and a fave!

Congrats on a beautiful AC!!

One person's weed is another Person's flower. I can never tell the difference and for that reason I can only work in the year under direct supervision of my wife.

I think a field full of dandelions is one of
the happiest looking things you can see! This
is a fantastic shot, Dave! Beautiful lighting!
Congratulations on your AC!

About WurzelDave

WurzelDave

I'm a 'wurzel' who lives in South West England (UK) in the county of Somerset (next to Devon), famous for scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese, The Wurzels (well worth going to see) & birth county of 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button.Like the rest of the West Country, Somerset has many areas, places & landscapes worth a visit such as Glastonbury Tor & Abbey ruins, Quantock hills, West Somerset Railway, Cheddar Gorge, & Exmoor, to name but a very few.Favourite holiday destiations are Iceland (see alot of photos) & the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi Sweden (also see photos). Still a lover of the flim camera, my first camera was an Halina 110 camera which you could buy flip flashes for! I have a Canon 3000V SLR film camera, also have some TLR cameras from the 1950's plus Canon powershot A3300 & SX150 digital cameras which are useful for close up macro shots & also makes film 'last' longer!
