The vibrant background colours complement the head of the thistle so nicely here and help in bringing out all the beautiful detail you captured. Great focus on this excellent autumn capture, Yves.

Thank you for your nice comment Heather. The thistle shows so beautyfuly the concept of giving birth to a new life going its way that it is becoming a ceremonial for me to picture that moment every fall.

Gorgeous shot Yves. The lighting was perfect to show off those little bits of thistle fluff about to blow in the wind. The thistle is shimmering on top of the darker bokeh. Beautifully captured Yves.

Thanks Debra. Glad you like the shot. The wind was just enough to detach a seed every minute or two. Spend many minutes and many shots but none where to my satisfaction. This one shot is to prepare the mind for the next shot.

Fall is here. Thistle shows the beauty of their seeds. Taken at the Drummond dam on the Magog river.
