I had a couple different friends interested in getting some of my dandelion shots printed but the one they liked wouldn't print as large as they would like it. In a quest to find another version that would work for their purposes I had a another little photo shoot session and I am really pleased with the results.

It had to be a set of 5 dandelion seeds in a 4x2 pano aspect ratio and I wanted to give them a choice of colour schemes.

1. Light Blue

2. Serene

3. Bright Orange

4.Navy

5. With added pollen

6. and one that doesn't fit their needs but I noticed the reflections and couldn't resist.

Thanks Roger, I think I have finally hit peak dandelion seeds for a while though. Only so many times I can set all these up before it loses some of the appeal. :)

Cheers Les, I was following a video Mike Singh posted in Pete Larkin's thread over here. The short explanation is you stick the dandelion seeds into blutack which is hidden below the surface of the opaque liquid, in this case oat milk. Then you place the droplets on the seeds using a fine syringe and choose the angles you want to shoot, good fun for a bit of experimentation as well as an explanation as to why I'm not doing the weeding in the garden... :D

Superb shots Ryan, my problem with trying that would be finding dandelions because soon as I see them in the garden they get dispensed with. LOL.

Thanks all,
@wraggtime that one has proven popular over on Flickr, it got chosen for Explore which I had never heard of but it got more likes and comments in one day than all my other images put together, ever.
It was a bit a strange choice to me as the seed base where they meet the milk in that one is not quite in focus like the others which nearly had me put it in the scrap bin had it not been for the colours.
