I’m a bit late posting my Project 52 image for this week, but I spent the week-end in Lakeport, CA with good friends. This is an image I made while birding at Clear Lake State Park. I can’t resist Teasel, thistles, and Flowers! 🙂

P52 21 of 52  Thistle

I can’t wait to show you the Clark’s Grebes doing the Courtship Dance that I observed there!

More to come…



  1. Nice photo with a nice simple clean background. I believe that this is a teasel not a thistle. Dipsacus is the genus for this flowering plant in the family Caprifoliaceae. The members of this genus are known as teasel, teazel or teazle.

    • Thank you for the correct ID on this plant Robert! I don’t think I’ve ever seen it when it’s flowering…only dried out. I’ll correct the text.

  2. wonderful detail and light on the thistle!!

A penny for your thoughts...
