Ah, the common dandelion. Everyone can recognize it, but I doubt most people have really looked closely at it. I never did until I took this shot of a nice fresh one. I thought they were like miniature mums, but Wikipedia tells me that the flower head you are seeing (above) is actually composed of many small flowers called florets. What surprised me when looking at the flower on my large monitor are all of the tiny spaghetti-like threads around the petals. I don’t know if they are pistols and/or stamins or something else. Below is a portion of the flower with the color altered and contrast enhanced just so you can see the squiggles amid the petals.
