Photographer Isabelle Chapuis teamed up with flower artist Duy Anh Nhan Duc to create these hypnotizing floral portraits.

Dandelions are probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you think "floral." You're more likely to picture bouquets of roses, peonies, violets, orchids. Anything but a dandelion, which is actually one of the most common plant species out there. Yeah, it might have been a fun thing to make a wish on when you were a kid, but it's every gardeners nightmare.

No longer! Chapuis' photographs feature dandelions as a soft, whimsical, and most importantly, beautiful. Coupled with female portraits, which are subtle but artful, and you've got yourself a devastatingly gorgeous series that might make you think twice before weeding your dandelions next spring.
