I too love doing macro photography, even though I have what is considered to be the poor man’s lens. It can be frustrating at times trying to focus properly, but I love the results most times any way.
I took these photos when the flower was going to seed, and I was surprised by its beauty.
This photo of the dandelion is edited, but it reminded me so much of fireworks going off.
Now I have a new appreciation for this bothersome yet beautiful stage of the dandelion.
