That 2nd shot is a unique view. Nicely done.

Thanks. It's the goat's beard after it's gone to seed. The flower closes up tight for a few days after it's done blooming, and you can see the fluff developing before it opens up again like a giant dandelion. Lots of fun to watch.

I like both views on this. Both show a different perspective of the plant.

No, I don't mind. I do want to mug you for your macro lens, though. :evil2: Is the choice of subjects a case of great minds thinking alike, or have the space aliens performed a super secret mind link surgery on us?

alien surgery...wansn't that a Geraldo episode??

Funny that the shot up there wasn't taken with my beloved OM 90mm f2 macro, it was done with the almost as equally beloved Zuiko Digital 12-60mm zoom. It focuses incredibly close and is sharp as hell.

Thanks, everyone. I'm starting to see them all over the place. Maybe I'll revisit them once they start losing some of their seeds.
