Not a dandelion

Here’s a black and white rendering of a giant, dandelion-like seed head of a Salsify plant. Also known as Oyster Plant (because the edible root supposedly tastes like oysters), it pops up in our yard this time of year. I’ve never eaten it, but maybe this is the year to give it a try. I wonder if it tastes better in black and white?
