Did you make a wish, Amelia? It's a lovely macro, withgreat detail when enlarged, and the single seed on top reminds me of a ballerina on point. Cheers! Theolfa

Not many can turn a weed into a work of art but you have managed it here!

Hello Amelia, I missed this one before. Very delicate and ...eh... tender. As a man I don't like words like tender very much, but... it is.

Cheers, Tom

Dear Suzi, as you can see I am miles behind with replies and visits, and I don't think I'll ever catch up! I am happy that you liked this little image, and the one of the tartan umbrellas - the latter of which we'll need here in Norway today :)))

Warm hugs, Amelia

And one of the last survivors stood proud and faced the fierce storm.

Brave he spoke: "Blow me away, see if I care"

Wonderful picture Amelia I Like it!

Cheers, Erik

Dear Janina, Tonia and Alan, first of all let me apologise for the lateness of my replies - I am miles behind!

Thank you my friends, for your appreciation of this photo and your lovely comments. Luckily it was a very still day - perhaps this dandelion seed is still here :)))

Greetings, Amelia

Dear Billy, LM and Carlos, firstly let me offer you my apologies for this late reply - I have been very busy for the last few weeks.

Billy, for once in my life I resisted the temptation, and walked away before the slightest breeze took the final seeds away :))

Sometimes the simplest things are the best LM :)))

Dear Carlos, your words are as sweet as honey. Hopefully this dandelion seed will taken by the breeze to yet another place, in order that Norway will be carpeted in gold next spring; unlike poor Odette, forever on the Lake of Swans :))

Warm greetings to you all from Norway, Amelia

Good evening TOMASHUIZAR, John and Anne, please accept my apologies for this late reply.

Tomas, many thanks for the BO. Even though this is no longer used, I appreciate your sentiments :))

Good evening John, I am so pleased that you liked this photo of a dandelion seed head - thank you my friend :))

Dear Anne, I am so far behind with my replies and visits, I sometimes wonder if I shall ever catch up! Many thanks my friend for the BO. I know it is now out-dated, but I really am happy that you thought this photo was good enough for that award :)))

Warm wishes from Norway, Amelia

Dear Klaus, Els, Hubs and Karl, many apologies my friends for my lateness to reply.

Dear Klaus, the moment may have been short-lived, and this little seed may apparently disappear for maybe another few months, but just think of the golden carpet in Drammen in early summer next year ;-)

els f, I am so pleased that you liked this simple photo of one of Nature's 'weeds'. If they weren't so common, people would grow them in their gardens to brighten up early summer :)

Thank you dear Hubs for the BO. It just shows how late I am with my replies, the Best of Panoramio 'went out of the window' some time ago! Nevertheless, I am very happy with the award :))

Good evening Karl, I haven't taken a breath since ... is it OK if I breath in now? I am feeling a bit light-headed ;-)

Warm greetings from Norway, Amelia

Amelia Royan on August 9, 2010

Dear Christien, Maja and Viktor, as you have probably gathered by now, I am very behind with all my replies, but even worse - with my visits!

Many thanks Christien. Indeed Nature is full of small miracles :))

Dear Maja, it is not really a rare moment at all, as you know. I just happened to be passing by. You will find a much better image here. But I thank you for the 'Nobel Prize', and I have broken free ;-)

Dear Viktor, I am really happy that you liked this photo my friend :))

Good evening Tom. Many thanks for the Y*. Although I am very late to reply, I really do appreciate your visit :))

Warm greetings to you all from Norway, Amelia

Amelia Royan on August 10, 2010

Hello Tom, many thanks, my friend, for the Y*. I am slowly catching up with replies, and will soon be visiting galleries once again :))

Dear Theolfa, indeed I did make a wish, and it came true. The seed didn't blow away before I'd managed to focus on it. I am pleased that you were reminded of a ballerina, that is exactly what I thought when I saw this :))

Dear Peter, now I'll have to go all the way back to Drammen - you naughty man! ;-)

Warm greetings to you all, Amelia

Amelia Royan on August 10, 2010

Dear Toto, and this one was the chosen one! It will have flown now, and already it will have germinated, ready to carpet Drammen in a cloth of gold, along with all the many others :))Many thanks for your lovely comment.

Hi Steve, if dandelions were a far less successful species, then folks would grow them in their gardens, for they are quite beautiful in lots of ways! After all the definition of a weed is just a plant that's out of place - and this one was a wild plant. Many thanks though for crediting me with a work of art! So gracious of you :)))

Hello Tom, both 'delicate' and 'tender' seem such apt words here ... and so I will excuse you for manifesting your feminine side ... no bad thing my dear friend :)))

Once again, please accept my apologies for these very late replies. I will soon be in the pleasant position of visiting galleries once again :))

Warm wishes from Norway, Amelia

Amelia Royan on August 10, 2010

Dear Eric, you are right - this little lone survivor would be more than willing to settle somewhere new. Many thanks for the L, I don't like the term, but it has its uses, and the Best of awards were flowing free like confetti at a wedding :))

Groetjes, Amelia

Patty Arsenault on December 13, 2010

Very nice photo, Amelia. Great title! The one seed on the top reminds me a ballet dancer. Cheers from Canada, Patty
