Spiky

By Rachel99
Hope you all had a good weekend. We went to Rye Meads nature reserve and watched the kestrels feeding their young - wonderful! Unfortunately, I don't have a lens that can get shots of them so here is a plant that was growing just outside the main entrance. Not sure what it is. I thought it was an eryngium but now I am not so sure. I am sure someone will put me right.
Many thanks for recent comments - much appreciated

Hesitate to say "sharp" given the qualities of teasels, but the focus is spot-on and the details superb.
