“Buzz Cut” (Bull Thistle, Cirsium vulgare) Nikon D300, 105mm macro, F/11, 1/400s, -0.7EV, ISO 400

Apparently, Bull Thistle is an unregulated, noxious weed.


That may be true, but I didn’t see “weed“, but rather, a very interesting flower form, full of opposing textures – soft on top, prickly on the bottom.

And, the bees LOVE this plant!

While I was shooting, there were numerous bumbles flitting from flower to flower. I did get some images with bees included, but I wanted this unusual flower to be center stage.

Soooo, one man’s weed is this woman’s shot of the day! 🙂
