Bull Thistle: So Invasively Appealing

 

Eurasian Bull Thistle, an invasive ‘weed’ now happily anchored in all 50 states, Europe, Africa, and Asia. I took this photo while camping at Walton Lake in Central Oregon.

The ‘weed’ is believed to have arrived in Colonial times. By the late 1800’s it had moved across the U.S. With some reputed medicinal purposes, it still is viewed as a nuisance. A somewhat attractive nuisance…as many nuisances are. I enjoy some macro work when in the field although I do not spend nearly enough time with the details of the shot. I am more the see it…shoot it photographer.
