Meadow Salsify, or Showy Goat's-beard, or Jack-go-to-bed-at-noon is a popular meadow flower that resembles dandilion - it matures into a globe of filaments that are usually distributed by wind, carrying away the seed-containing achenes. The filaments are not that fine and resemble a goat's beard - simnce the popular name.

If you cannot recognise it from this close up, you can see a more general view of the globe in my workshop.

Hi Anton,
A very good macro of this flower!
I like so much the close approach to observe with clarity each part of the inflorescence.
It's very good and useful the picture on the workshop, it let us have a better idea of how the whole flower looks like.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
JM
