51/365 One flower, two faces

If you were an unknowing person looking at dandelions for the first time, and one was in its yellow blooming stage and the second was in this seed stage, if you didn't know any better, there's no way you'd think it was the same flower. Don't you think?

One is a vibrant yellow, with lots of petals on a broad blossom. The other is perfectly round, fluffy, somewhat translucent, and in the slightest breeze disintegrates and floats away.

Who'd have thought that one flower could adapt in such a way? Mother Nature amazes me yet again.

Camera: Canon Rebel DSLR, 1/250s, f/4.5, ISO 100 in natural daylight at about 7:30 p.m.
