Default Monster Dandelions

During my forced exile at the Fort de Salses I spied these monster dandelions, and just had to snap them. In the midday sun they were all golden, silvery and delicate. The 2nd shot gives you an idea of what they are like when still closed and the last shot an idea of the size in comparison to the wheat and grasses. All taken in Macro mode. Comments welcome too.

I'm really not sure if they are related or not .... i'm going for yes as the make-up is the same as a dandelion but this time on a huge scale.

I belive it is goatsbeard ((Tragopogon pratensis), which belongs to the family Asteraceae as well as dandelion.

Dyane, really beautiful shots. The layers of colors and texture with very effective DOF makes these really special! LOVE them.
