Sunriver seed puffs
Related to a dandelion, obviously, but never have I seen one outside of Sunriver (Central Oregon, alongside the banks of the Deschutes River).
2008, Fujifilm Finepix S100fs, which can shoot near-macro at very long focal lengths, aiding bokeh of background:
2017, Fujifilm X10, M size, P mode, ISO Auto400, DR400, cropped from 6 MP original; its macro mode is difficult to use at longer focal lengths, so the background is less blurred:
