Dandelions blowing in the wind

Posted by wildwatertv on November 25, 2009

High speed dandelion seeds.  It took over 200 separate dandelion heads to produce about ten usable photographs.  The way the seeds leave the head is at best unpredictable.  Photo taken using an infra-red trigger and flash at about 1/50,000 second to freeze the seeds in the air.  Nikon D300, Micro-Nikkor 105/4.
