Patterns excite me...is it 20 after 11 then? I was guessing by the empty space rather than the full which should be 5 minutes to 4...is that right?

Well seen and well composed image of a withering Dandelion, Hilary.
Your impulse to grab your camera and capture this 'Dandelion Clock' was justified.
There is something different about this state of the flower which you have conveyed quite effectively through this wonderful picture.
TFS and regards.

Brilliant capture of this Dandelion seedhead. Very common subject but you've really managed to capture it from an interesting POV and the light and the dark background makes it stand out so nicely. Great to see only half the seeds left too! Well done and nicely composed too!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

It is much nicer to wander around your garden with the camera rather than do the gardening. The light is lovely here and you have shown pin sharp details. Excellent DOF and POV

A lovely close up of this dandelion.My kids love to blow the seeds around my garden ...much to my chagrin.I did it to my father when I was young,big bouquets of them.lol.
Wonderful pov and composition.
The lighting is used to good effect.
Lovely contrast and colour.

This is very detailed and sharp.
I like how well you have composed the flowerhead in the bottom l/h corner along with the green b/g. That leaves an interesting, vacant space top right.
I was always trained that the space you leave is as interesting as what you show. It works very well here!

I've looked at this since the day you uploaded it, and was sure I commented.
Impressive darkness in behind to highlight the seeds.
Very well focused and detailed Hilary.

This one is definitely worth a visit!
The composition, lighting and sharpness are all first class in this shot of a half-spent dandelion seed head. I like th contrasting dark BG too.
Some of the seeds may have ended up on your compost again to germinate next year, as they do on my compost heap!
TFS this artistic image,

A very popular subject with photographers and this is one of the better ones I've seen, with the dark background helping emphasise the seed head. Very well composed and exposed and very well thought out.

A bit OE in the center very cute picture of an old dandelion. I like creative idea, impressive POV, square cropping and exact framing. Lights, darks and colours are very good too. My best regards and kind wishes.
