Stan Paul captured this photo in his front yard in Riverside after he noticed a group of dandelions blooming on his lawn.
"It's been very spring-like lately, and these flowers and other things are starting to pop up, so I thought I would grab a photo," he said.
Paul used an iPhone 4S to make this image on March 11.
