My Sunday Photo... Dandelion Flower

Initially I couldn't believe the audacity of this particular dandelion to actually flower... smack bang right in the middle of my freshly cut lawn! 
It stood centre stage, alone and proud.
Considering that the lawns were only cut two days ago, it had managed to miss the lawn mower blades and had grown to such an extent, as to produce this flower. 
Quite an achievement! 
Never underestimate the power of a weed
But then who decides what is a weed and what is a flower?

I've wanted to capture the image of a dandelion for quite some time.
Today was the day.
It seemed fitting to give it even more limelight by choosing it for My Sunday Photo this week.

I had fun playing around with the image.
This is the negative edit. 

As usual I'm linking with Photalife

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
