It's an Alien!!!!

No it's just a humble dandelion. 

Not the familiar yellow flower but the lowly seed head.

Have you ever looked at a seed head through a macro lens.....pretty interesting. 

Let's take a look.

Quite interesting, isn't it.

Oh and by the way.  Here's is how the blueberries are progressing. These images were made May 9th.

They now look quite different than they did when I posted about them on my last post. 

Linking with MACRO MONDAY 2

Wishing you all a wonderful week.

I do look at stuff in the zoomed in sure makes a difference. These are some of the most awesome shots, Felicia!
Wow - so interesting close up! Very intricate and delicate. My baby grandson laughed for the first time for me when I blew the seed-heads off a dandelion :) x Karen
Fantastic photos by the dandelion and their seeds. This plant is very helpful by issues with the liver and gallbladder, especially the root and the leaves. And I love blueberries.
Best, Synnöve

Dozzens of tiny parachutes and little paratroopers in every dandelion seed head. Nice close in macro work!
