Goatsbeard

Friends, this flower resembles a giant dandelion and goes to seed with a large puffy ball that looks similar to the dandelion. This is a goatsbeard, so named because of the whisps trailing from the seeds. The above image has been subjected to the Orton Effect and i like the softness, but detail is still sharp.  The image below is a magnified view of the flower center to show the structures. til Tomorrow MJ
