It is either a Wavyleaf thistle or a Texas thistle – still investigating the subtle differences between Cirsium undulatum and Cirsium texanum. Any botanists want to chime in? Both are plumed thistles, I believe.
Adventures, great and small, with camera.
nice capture. love the colors
Thanks. I’ve been doing a lot of wildflower shooting. I am trying to organize and figure out how I want to show them. Now if only I would stop laying down on cacti or in noxious plants to get the shots. Oh well, it is worth the pricks and pains.
I can’t help you on the botany part, but I can thank you for amzaing me with an amazing, beautiful picture. But where is Dino? :)
I had the dog with me, and I can’t handle both him and Dino. They get real rowdy together. :)
jajajaja. Ah yes, I forgot to thank you for often making me laugh out loud.
:) and have a good last week as a PCV!
