I like to photograph plants and flowers. My photograph of a simple Dandelion clock which I shows the secret of creation by illustration the star seed theory of the earths creation. I processed the image using Fractalius and called the image “Dandelion Unity”
A personal favorite.
You will find beauty in everything, just look!!!
The back of a Dandelion seed head (clock).
Children LOVE them!
We don’t like them in our gardens… AND YET: The dandelion plant is a beneficial weed, with a wide range of uses, and is even a good companion plant for gardening.
Its taproot will bring up nutrients for shallower-rooting plants, and add minerals and nitrogen to soil.
It is also known to attract pollinating insects and release ethylene gas which helps fruit to ripen.
Taraxacum seeds are an important food source for certain birds.
Taraxacum, the common name is dandelion (from French dent-de-lion, meaning “lion’s tooth”), after flowering is finished, the dandelion flower head dries out for a day or two.
The dried petals and stamens drop off, the bracts reflex (curve backwards), and the parachute ball opens into a full sphere. Finally, the seed-bearing parachutes expand and lift out of it.
The parachute drops off the achene when it strikes an obstacle.
After the seed is released, the parachutes loose their feathered structure and take on a fuzzy, cotton-like appearance, often called “dandelion snow”.Another thing I love about being a photographer, you start looking at things in a ‘different’ way?
So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth.
