[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took the photo of this unusual looking plant at the Jardin des Plants in Paris, the main botanical garden in France. Fuller's Teasel (Dipsacus Fullonum) is an introduced weed. Native Americans and Europeans used the bristly heads to card wool and raise the nap on woolen textiles.

Hi Lili,
Very nice composition. Thanks for sharing sharp and beautiful picture of this new kind of weed.

Lili, this would have to be the best composed photo yet and the clarity and exposure are terrific - other photos tended to be a little over exposed. Great point of view, nice depth of field and good composition - congrats
