Thistles

Yesterday's post was gentle and soft.
Today's post is prickly and sharp.

These guys had lots of company.
 Taken at Cheadle Lake on the last day of February.

  1. These Teasel are my favorite wild things!I think I've seen a batch around these roads somewhere Kari. Someday I'll cut some and put them somewhere around here. Great photos!!

  2. Love the perspective on the second shot! Who thought anyone could make dried out old thistles look so attractive?

  3. Thanks Eve,
    Teasel - That's the word I was looking for! They are interesting aren't they. As long as you don't get too close (or keep on those leather gloves).

    Thanks Dan,
    That's the fun of photography, seeing what strange object will make a great subject. I kinda like old, worn, dried out stuff whether plants or buildings.
