Dandelion part deux

At 6:50 this morning I figured I'd spend about 20 minutes photographing a dandelion. More than an hour later I came up for air. I'm trying to create images that reflect the light and airy nature of these beautiful weeds and so am purposely overexposing my shots and purposely using very shallow depth of field. The gear? Various combinations of a 100mm macro lens, extension tubes, and a two-element close-up diopter. ©Carol Leigh

Can understand becoming absorbed in photographing them. Both are beautiful and create a different mood.
