Cat Tails

By liparig
These are Cat tails at least I think there called that, I am sure they have another name. I thought the texture of these flowers with the blue sky in the back made for interesting photo. Had to lie below the plant on a hill to get fill the whole background with the sky.

Taken at Spring Lake in Sonoma county in California.

Great angle - love the textures and detail, particularly against that blue sky. Think they're known as teasels?

Hi Joe,
Thanks for your comment and vote!
I can relate to this kind of photo. It looks good. Simple and well composed. I have always wanted to know what those "thistles" were called. I think another name might be "Teasel"....more research required I think...!

I think the English call these 'teezles'
Very simple but really effective!
