Since living in Chile I have discovered a love of the lowly, misunderstood thistle... I think maybe it is the contrast between its beautiful flower and its "armed to the teeth" body... it screams, "come to me, if you dare!"

I shot this with a 23mm prime lens, so I had no choice but to get up close and personal... on one side of me was a busy road, and the other side of the thistle a canal... so I parked my bicycle in the tall grass and I cuddled up close to my subject to capture as many angles as I could from several different plants within 100 meters of each other.
