Eugenio- Good morning my friend. Oh, I love this dandelion gone to seed a thousand times better than the one I did. What sensational work. The background really sets off the seedling with astonishing colors. Your lighing can't be any better. Sunny and brilliant. Now the details just bring out the beauty of the seedling. They are so percise and give us a most wonderful view of the unique designs.
The clarity is like being right there. So clear and sharp.
Very impressive work.
You have yourself a most fabulous day, take care of yourself, be safe out there. #5834390

You will always be a winner in my book friend!
