There is still snow on the ground but the temperature got up over freezing, and I saw a Robin today. Spring can't be that far away, so neither can dandelions.

    Just what I need, MIchael!! This looks like a giant starburst of yellow sunlight. Fabulous macro!!! Very nice shot, especially when so much of the weather is rather dark and dismal!

    Great shot! I love dandelions, too! Don't tell my neighbors, but I spread their seeds all over my backyard for my tortoises (and me). :-)

    Even dandelions can be beautiful, as your photo shows. The bloom looks like it is almost exploding, has great detail and the DOF is great!
