[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Quite often we overlook the beauty left behind by flowers long after they have produced their seeds. Here is an example: The receptacle of the composite flower of the Onopordum cynarocephalum, the Artichoke Thistle. The nice tessellation was left by the seeds now gone. In the WS you can see a few seeds still attached in another flower receptacle.

Hallo Ishi
Everything in this image is just so beautiful, from the golden colour of the flower's crown right to the shine on the petals of this Artichoke Thistle. It almost looks as if this flower was dipped into a pot of gold and left out in the sun to dry. A super macro with a artistic touch to it. Thanks for sharing this beauty. Best regards.

Bonjour Ishi,
Je n'ai pas retrouvé le nom que tu donnes à ta publication qui m'a tout de suite fait penser à une Carlina acanthifolia à cause de l'effet de soleil qu'elle restitue ; il n'en demeure pas moins une très belle image bien détaillées sous une splendide lumière.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello ishi,
