    • Hi Lisa,
      It was early morning when I saw this dandelion, I thought it was unusual because I don’t think I have really noticed unopened dandelions before (or really didn’t pay attention)
      First it picked the dandelion (yep, I did) and then I used a piece of tape and taped it to our fence, so it would be off the ground (I don’t mind lying on the ground to take a photo, but it was in an awkward spot). The water droplets were are already on the dandelion since it was early morning and was a bit rainy the night before (but you can always use a spray bottle). I have a Nikon Micro (macro) lens and I was close, really close- like an inch away from the dandelion. I can’t remember if I used my tripod or not. The tripod certainly helps steady the shot, but typically I don’t use one because they are…well, cumbersome. (I probably should though). My ISO was 1000, yep 1000. I did this so I could still have a fast shutter speed and a large aperture. 1/200 s and f 8.0 (probably could have shot at f 11, I would have liked a bit more clarity)
      My previous post (dandelion drops), that picture used the same settings. The post before that (dandelion), the second picture had these settings: ISO 500 1/100s and f 4.8

      hope that helps, maybe it was more info. than you wanted :) -Kim
