[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is something of a novelty. I hope you enjoy the joke. No butterflies today, just some contrasting seed-heads in a montane pasture at about 1,000m in Esatern Oregon.

The large circular ball of dandelion-type seeds is just perfectly spherical and yet in from the left comes a sharp, spiky grass stem, just set to "burst the bubble" on the right.

Resized and sharpened for TN.

Wonderfully composed image Alan,
Funny how a common dandelion seed pod can look so beautiful when captured in a shot like this. TFS.

hello Alan,
Not a joke, just a very fine natural picture. I like a lot

Hi Alan!

This is the most creative and yet so balanced composition I've seen lately! Colors are very pleasing, the title is superb, it's altogether a peace of art! Many TFS! Favorites for the first look...

Best regards,
