Wild Dandelions in the Wild Winds
Posted By: CrankyElbow, 07-30-2014, 09:45 PM

Very windy for this shot - the movement of this patch of dandelions in a ditch was pretty incredible! I enjoy the interplay of sharp, not so sharp,and totally blurred yellow sprinkled among the frame

Nice bank of yellow blowing in the breeze.
Oh, I have some amazing shots of the tall dandelions, they're pretty flowers up-close. Mostly I'm looking for bees but that's where the bees are!

Yep bees love dandelions

Have you ever eaten them? The greens are available in some grocery stores - best eaten "young" before the flower pops up. A bitter green, for sure. That said I love the slight sweetness of the flowers and have even made tea from them in the past
