Dandelion Seed Head Also known as “Thief”

Used D3200 and Nikon 55-200mm f3.5VR

From Wikipedia:

Taraxacum officinale, the common dandelion (often simply called “dandelion”), is a flowering herbaceous perennial plant of the family Asteraceae (Compositae). It can be found growing in temperate regions of the world, in lawns, on roadsides, on disturbed banks and shores of water ways, and other areas with moist soils. T. officinale is considered a weed, especially in lawns and along roadsides, but it is sometimes used as a medical herb and in food preparation. Common dandelion is well known for its yellow flower heads that turn into round balls of silver tufted fruits that disperse in the wind called “blowballs” or “clocks” (in both British and American English).

Here are some photos from last month of Drapetsona Harbor taken from High ground using the Nikon 55-200mm VR telephoto. I wanted to achieve a different prespective by using the lens at its largest focal length.
