Thistledown

While I was at Mooney's Bay,

I saw this thistle which had gone to seed.

I am so happy that my new camera will take photos like this!

I especially love the way the sun catches the threads of the parachutes that will sail the seeds away!

Looks like quite a few new thistle plants will be popping up next spring. ;-) Nice photos!

Great macros, the thistledown is shinning in the sunlight.
I especially like the last photo with a bit of one of the flowers showing.
