Thistle Bud

Posted by

Don't remember which Thistle this was. I love its jewel-like appearance.
We should be home today, but I don't know that I will have time to post a new photo, so posted this one in advance.

The background (and saturation?) create an "egg" that would put Faberge to shame. I enjoyed thinking about the choices you _could_ have made (in composition) that would would have weakened the over-all effect

It's a great shot and the "egg" is so lovely. Great colours and details. I'm not so sure about the green leaf in the bottom I think that it's a bit disturbing. But that's IMHO
