Teasel Top

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Teasel Top
Teasel Top

---
We normally shoot teasels in late summer or autumn when the blossoms have gone and the shapely skeleton stands gracefully like a ballerina, swaying in the breeze.
---
For THIS teasel shot, I was standing beside a large pond at one of the stops on the Bucks County (Audubon-sponsored) Barn Tour last July. It's a view of a midsummer teasel, looking down on its blossom.

I don't believe I've ever seen a Teasel before. We may not have them in California. Great clarity and detail, Michelle.

Exquisite detail in both Michelle with just the slightest hint of color.

I don't know this plant but looks great in both your images Michelle. Love the lighting and colour in this one. But I must say I really like the B/W

Striking teasel capture, Michelle! Very unique POV, looks terrific with all that wonderful detail and color. But I really like your other teasel capture as well - very classic.

Beautiful capture, Michelle; I like the sepals (?) that have tiny little spikey bits coming off them.
