The dandelion is clearly the interloper here, inserting itself among the trilliums. These wildflowers were photographed on a recent hike in the woodlands of northeast Wisconsin.
I tried to capture the purity and details in the petals of the trillium blooms. The dandelion seemed to be photobombing. If you look closely, I think you can see a sly smirk on the dandelion’s face.
In any case, you can see all of the detail better by viewing the larger version. To do that, simply click on the photo.

The delicate dandelion blossom in its last stages. The dandelion, like other members of the Asteraceae family, has very small flowers collected together in a composite flower head. Each single flower in a head is called a floret.
It seems every photographer has a dandelion photo…and this is mine. They do make interesting subjects.
