Day 115 of my 365 Photo Challenge.
Today's photo shows a Dipsacus.
The cardoon (Dipsacus) is a plant genus in the subfamily of the cardoon family (Dipsacoideae) within the family of honeysuckle plants (Caprifoliaceae).
The approximately 20 species are widely distributed in Eurasia and North Africa.
This photo was also taken freehand with my Nikkor 70-200 mm telephoto lens.
