Photographer's Note

From many parts of the world photos with tulips are posted, I'll try something different here to represent the spring in my country.
Do u know how this flower is called? A dandelion. Do u know how they call it in my country? The deaf flower. What is so special about this flower? It has a yellow flower head and notched leaves consisted of many tiny flowers see this, but when it comes in a reproduction faze in spring, it turns like this, the flower matures into a globe of fine filaments that are usually distributed by wind, carrying away the seed-containing achenes.
It's very fragile, if u shake it a bit, all of its filaments will start flowing around and in my country there is a myth for children that says that if a filament goes into your ear, u will turn deaf, so that's why we call it "The Deaf Flower".

I literally lied down in the grass to take the shot and my goal was not to capture just another macro flower, but I centered the sun in the head of the dandelion, the sun is right behind that dark circle part and that's why it looks like it's glowing. When I got up, there were dandelion particles all over me, I had some trouble removing them believe me.
I salute the spring with this photo, my favorite weather season.
