Thistle in bloom, another meadow close-up

Piggy-backing on yesterday’s meadow close-up, here’s a thistle in bloom.

Here is the latest in a series of close-up (macro) photographs I took last summer while tromping through the meadow properties of the Darien Land Trust. From July 24 to Aug. 31, I’ll post a different close-up meadow photograph on this site.

Here’s more background on the project.
