Macro and Micro Picture of the Day 2020-04-30

Here is a dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) seed. Their parachute and light weight allows them to travel large distances by wind. 2,000 dandelion seeds weigh only about one gram.


Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel T5i with a standard zoom lens (EF-S 18-55 mm) on a 7 mm long extension tube.
