Dandelion Flower: Up close and beautiful

The most common yellow flower at this time of year in Regina, Saskatchewan, is the Dandelion.

Personally, I think they are charming, both in bloom and feathery seed head... But lest anyone insult my lawn, let me clarify that the Dandelion here was photographed out of the city, at a nature reserve.

Weed or wild flower, Dandelions' bright colour brightens the landscape — and sometimes attracts interesting insects, like the little bug pictured here, and the American Dog Tick on my Prairie Nature blog.
