[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Very thorny Spiny Cocklebur Xanthium spinosum from aster family (Asteraceae).
Native to South America, has now spread to many countries throughout the world, inter alia mediterranean region, Europe and some coastal African countries. I have found it ruderal plant in Moroccan flora, also.

Ruderalised wadi in Tiznit city outskirts. Inflorescense.

Dear Michal

I like your simple, yet very pleasant picture. The two main colour tones - brown and green - are complementary and create a fine and appeasing effect. The focus is good and at the right place. The bluured parts lead the spectator's eye out of the picture. Moreover, the plant is beautiful and your picture reflects this at best.

Kind regards
