Is that a bug photo bombing this picture? Before zooming in, I thought it was an old leaf stuck to the stem or an injured stem. I’m still wondering. If it is, that bug’s camouflage is incredible. What do you think?
Thanks Cee for hosting this flower challenge! Every time I see a pretty flower I’m inspired to share it here with everyone. Have a great start to the weekend!
We picked two fuzzy dandelion heads to try our experiment. As is usual with dandelion puffs, any movement blew away the little florets. And I just learned that a seed can travel up to five miles and the part that blows away is called parachutes; a descriptive and suitable name.
Kids walked carefully shielding the puff with their free hand. Once outside our home, we hair sprayed a dandelion puff to see if it would keep its form. It did! A few days later, only the stem withered but the hair sprayed part remained the same.
