  2. Hi merging point,

    I will try to get you the full flower, but I actually took this photo on a bush walk, so I'll have to see if I can find any other thistles (of course, this shouldn't be hard!)

    Cheers,

    David

  4. Hi michico adan,

    Thanks for visiting, I appreciate your comments very much. Lighting is something very hard to get right in some photographs - I'm glad you like this one!

    Cheers,

  5. David,

    What a beautiful photo that captures the sweeping grace of nature. I love thistle. We have purple thistle that grows on our land.

  6. Hi JJ,

    It is amazing to see how graceful nature is, even in a weed. But, even when it's as graceful as this, I don't know of many other people who would love thistle, especially when it grows on their land! :D

    Cheers,

    David

  7. Hi kml,

    Certainly yikes! I accidentally touched one of these when I was getting close for a photo - it didn't seem so great at that time! :)

    Cheers,

  9. Hi DSM,

    This isn't a tropical flower, it's actually just a common thistle! Although it looks somewhat like a flower. I'll try to get up a photo of it's flower as soon as it comes out too.

    Cheers,

    David
