bellissima macro dal titolo metaforico, eccellenti POV e composizione, straordinaria definizione dei dettagli, molto belli e saturi i colori e ottimo BG.
Grazie e complimenti.

the photo is as sharp as the thistle itself.
I hope though, that life will be kind to you
the thistleflower has very soft gentle seeds
so light: the wind blows them away.
very kind regard to you AC

I know that you can recover, it will just take time. I know what it is like, having had 10 ops on my left arm (waiting for the 11th but thats very minor this time) and at one point being too ill to walk... I am now fully fit (but still partially paralysed down the whole of the left side of my body) but I still cycle and swim everyday and climb mountains when my health permits. hopefully you will get there eventually as well... though it is 15 years since my accident, time is the best healer...
Great shot and fantastic sharpness and light. It was the light that attracted me to the picture.
TFS and keep smiling and trying. it is really the only way.

Is the glass half full or half empty? Is life as beautiful and coloured or as stinging and harsh as this thistle? I know it's easy to say, but I nevertheless believe that the way we look at things is very important.
Now, for me you present us here a real beauty. The lighting and the colours are superb and I wish this beautiful thistle will help you to recover...
I'm sorry, I can't help you for the ID.

Très belle publication, bien composée dans laquelle le sujet est particulièrement bien mis en valeur par la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

What a great shot! The interaction of the light with the spiky petals, and the whole flower offset against the bark b/g makes this a lovely presentation!
I wish U a speedy recovery!
