My Dandelion

My Dandelion

It seems that the only way I can get any time to shoot new photos lately is during the walk to and from the letterbox (about 1km away). I saw this nice round fluffy dandelion and as I zoomed in for a macro shot I saw that I was intruding on this wee fly – I managed to get this shot before it shooed me away.
