It fooled me at first, too, but it was growing in the sand dunes and had a different stalk to the "Lions Teeth" that we are all familiar with.

Thanks Mike and kat (good to see you back - hope all is well with you).

You are very kind, blai. I find close ups quite difficult (especially when in is windy) and this was a rare success.

Thanks, Keith

Lovely photo, Keith. The dandelions have many close relatives. Their latin family name is 'Taraxacum'. Kind regards, May

I guess it is a type of Dandelion, May, but I didn't look closely at the leaves. Thanks for your kind words.
