Crop, a few tweaks in Irf.
Thought of black and white, but the colours seemed to reinforce the whimsy. Found dandelion seeding itself as I was crawling around trying to get a flower: very gingerly pulled off a few of the pods to leave two and this happened.

POST: Big thank you to commenters: now that you've said it I SEE it - I was wondering why it wasn't working that well even for me.

Nice picture - Nice light but these type of pics need to be pin sharp I think to really work and this one is just a little too unsharp.

Nice. Wish more of the "hairs" could be in focus, but I know that can be tough to accomplish. Might be nice to see a little more NR on the background.

Beautiful bokeh background - your choice of DoF is spot on, isolating the two dandelion seeds perfectly. Love the title too.

It looks slightly blurred. Good idea though.
