Pecos Thistle Portraits

Milk thistle.

Thistle friends.

I somehow felt as though the thistles were having a conversation. With me, or themselves? About the weather? The visitors? Being a cool thistle?

The second photo was taken before I found the macro setting. The top photo was taken with the macro on.
Here are a couple of super duper closeups. I can't decide which one I like best, the closeup of the purple tips, or the slightly farther out view that shows the circular rhythm of them:

  1. Very nice pictures! I'm fond of thistles, as catepillars and butterflies feed off them. And artichokes are a kind of thistle (yum)
