Photographer's Note

The Teasel Flower makes for an interesting prickley subject. It flowers from the middle of the cone first; with the blooms making their way to either end. When the flowers are gone, the cones were harvested, put on machines and used to tease wool; thus the name Teasel Flower. The bee or hornet; I can't tell ; was a bonus in this photograph. In all my travels along the Rouge River and Duffin's Creek I had never seen the flower actually blooming. Its a digital image, slightly cropped and with just a touch of unsharp masking applied.
