Macro photography of a Dendelion (Taraxacum officinale). Wind had already removed many seeds from the plant’s head before I took the shot in April 2012. This was in a forest close to Cannes, South of France.
The french common name for this plant is “Pissenlit”, which means pee-in-bed! This comes from the plant’s diuretic properties. The other word to describe this plant in France is “dent-de-lion”, which means lion’s tooth, because of the curved shape of its leaves.
