It's the fluff that carries a seed on the wind. But without the seed itself, it would be difficult to ID. Does it have the seed attached?

Welcome to ATP
Looks like a single seed fluff from a Dandelion ( Shrug! ?)

Shrug! I have no idea, but I would also guess a Dandelion Fuzz! Hilarious!
Looks like fireworks to me!

Cynara cardunculus is another that looks like that. Guess it could be many different things.
Can you find some that still have a seed attached as @Zencat asked? That would sure help.

Pretty fluff but I have no idea which plant it's from. For comparison:
