Laugh it up, fuzzball

Continuing with photos from my manual photography session on Wednesday. Here's a little dandelion-type plant showing flower buds about to open and a fully formed seed head before the seeds are blown away. Keep in mind that the camera is hand-held in all of these shots; no tripod!

These flowers are much smaller than standard dandelions at about 2cm in diameter.

The title of today's post is a line from a very well-known movie. Do you remember it?


  1. I LOVE your flower pics almost as much as the food ones!! Have a great WEEKEND... TGIF!!

    P.S. I don't know the film...

  2. I assume you would number the movie as II, being an old fashioned sort of guy... II makes V in the new money, apparently.

  3. I think that these little fuzzballs were an important piece of all of our childhoods.

  4. Han Solo said that line to Chewbacca in one of the Star Wars movies. But "furball" would be more accurate, n'est pas?

  5. Other than the Star Wars movie, I can't think of a movie in which that line might have been spoken.

  6. leesa, thanks!

    simon, righty-o.

    alewis, and they continue to be.

    anon, well, technically, 'ball' would not be accurate at all...

    starman, that's the one.

    ANSWER: Simon nailed it, and was kind enough to encrypt his answer. The line was spoken by Han Solo to Chewbacca in "The Empire Strikes Back," the second Star Wars film, which was called Episode V.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
