Huge thistle at Sudeley Castle

This was the size of a fist at least, not seen one before. You?

Not that big certainly but perhaps it is something to do with global warming, or obesity or Michael Jackson

This makes a beautiful abstract Nig!
A thistle on steriods perhaps Nigel! All the same it's a terrific shot.

We've got a couple of monsters like this in our garden - they flower every year around August time. Sometimes the heads are small, sometimes big. Nice picture Nigel.

It looked more like a Triffid to me,this has come out really well.Great shot Nig.The detail and focus are amazing.
Never seen as big a thistle! It seems that it is inhabited by a canvas, perhaps a spider?

Great abstract; like the perspective and the colours.
