[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
the dandelion..just one of natures wonders

From its thick tap root, dark brown, almost black on the outside though white and milky within, the long jagged leaves rise directly, radiating from it to form a rosette Iying close upon the ground, each leaf being grooved and constructed so that all the rain falling on it is conducted straight to the centre of the rosette and thus to the root which is, therefore, always kept well watered. The maximum amount of water is in this manner directed towards the proper region for utilization by the root, which but for this arrangement would not obtain sufficient moisture, the leaves being spread too close to the ground for the water to penetrate.
was this 'designed'

Hello Geof,
I love this one... A yellow carpet covering the ground as long as my eye can see! Must be millions of them... Soon this field will take on a gray colour!
Awesome repetitional effect, well done!
