Photo of our barn taken through the thistles that grow down by the creek. Farmers hate these things and consider them a nuisance. My husband does too. I talked him into leaving several of them when he mowed the field.The finches,butterflies, and bees love them .Thistles are great subjects for photos,but you have to be careful around them .They will stick you. I have the scratches to prove it.

Lightbox for best viewing.

    Excellent! Middle Tennessee AND East Tennessee appear to be rife with them. (We saw many of those in Greece too!)

    This is lovely...I know what you mean about thistles and how they can stick into your skin...I also get pricked by thorns in rose bushes that tear into the skin....

    Definitely lightbox awesome!!! Love the red barn in the background, makes a pretty bokeh for the shot. I have been scratched by thistles also, but they do make a pretty photo. Glad you got some saved for the finches, butterflies and bees to enjoy : )
