Sunday Stills: Texture

The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was texture. How about a Bull Thistle? They are terribly prickly. I hate them.
What about some foliose and crustose lichens on a Burr Oak? I like lichens:)

  11. It always amazes me that donkeys and horses will eat thistle. I get a laugh out of watching how delicately my horse will nip a little piece of thistle off to chew.

  13. These are GREAT.
    I love texture and find out that the photos that I take that I like the most always have a texture element to them.

  22. That Bull thistle looks pretty mean! But the bloom is beautiful. The lichen is interesting. We just collected a variety of mosses and lichens to put on our photo blog (there goes that great minds thing again!)
