The theme “Something I Don’t Like” is one of those themes where it’s so open you get a little overwhelmed trying to narrow it down to one subject. It just so happens that ever since we moved into our home we’ve been locked in mortal combat with weeds in our backyard which seems to be specifically formulated to grow weeds, but not grass.

I caught this shot in a surreptitious moment as the seed from another Dandelion I was photographing fell off onto this blossom and absolutely made the shot! I’ll credit luck every time it happens!

I have to inform you that although no weeds/vegetation were harmed in the making of this series of photographs that all of these died a horrific death at the hands of a rapidly spinning mower blade soon after…

I refuse to mourn! 😉

Thanks for stopping by, my next post will show something I love and dislike, I hope this week you photograph something that you love.

Happy Shooting!
