This photo is incredible! I love how only one of the teasels is in perfect focus leaving the rest kind of off focus. This one seems to stand out, it stands alone even in a crowd. It is framed by the frail spider webs, which brings it out even more. I also love how the background colors are so different from the colors of the main subject. The teasels are mostly brown and dead looking, but the vibrant, and yet muted, greens of the background bring life to the photo. The hints of red among the greens are sure signs of that Fall is almost here. This photo is truly a capture of the process of Summer giving way to Fall, my favorite season I might add! Also, the texture of the photo, particularly the background, is phenomenal! I simply love the blurry shapes of color that I am assuming is grass (?) in the bottom, right corner. It brings more life to the picture, and really adds to it with it's diversity. There is more that just the teasels growing here! I especially like how the grass (again '?';) is slightly covering the teasel in the bottom left corner, giving this an excellent depth of field, and perspective. The fact that the main teasels are growing from the right and end up mostly on the left makes it seem so real! This is an amazing photo, and no matter how long I stare at it, I can not find anything that needs improvement. 'Don't add paint to a masterpiece'!!!! This really is an amazing photo, and you should be very proud of it!

No i dont have any yet. Trouble is theyre biennials like Foxgloves which means it takes two years to get to flowering size then it dies.

They're worth it! :heart: Just sow every year, and you'll have a 'crop' every year! :hug:
