Thistles popping up everywhere lately. I love these prickly little things.

Very nice pics, Bethany, I can't decide between #1 + #2.
I'm sure I see a little ant in #1! ant

Thank you so much! I didn't notice it at first, but that definitely looks like an ant. Thistles seem to be pretty popular with the bugs and birds. smile

Bethany, I really like the depth you've achieved in #2, with the out of focus thistles in the background and the muted detail in the greenery further back. Nicely done.

Thank you so much! I think I'm finally getting to a point where I can eyeball the distance between the subject and the background and understand what kind of effect I'm going to get. Practice makes perfect!

I love them too! The purple is such a delight to the senses!

It sure is! It's such an intense color on the first spikes at the top, love that!
