The name of this flower in France is Cardère or "Cabaret des oiseaux". I don't know why ??? A very attractive taking in diagonal.

Superb macro, you have made it look so poised as if to strike,
yet keeping the beautiful fresh mystery alive.

Wonderful macro. I love the crisp details in the foreground over the beautiful bokeh background. You have two diagonals in the thistle and the green dof. Wonderful!

Lovely macro, in Scotland we call them teasels, they were in days gone by used to tease sheep's wool. Birds love them especially gold finches.
