Dandelion sparkler

A dandelion's seed head sparkles in the sunlight. This photo is a continuation of my exploration of little things made big through coupling two lenses face-to-face.

Quick fact: The dandelion got its name because of its sharp-lobed leaves. In old French, dent-de-lion is translated lion's tooth.

And I grew up thinking that the yellow flower resembled a lion's mane and looked kind of dandy.
