Here are 3 images of the seed down from a Canada Thistle (Cirsium arvense). There are a few of these growing at the edge of my yard, so I put a couple pieces of the fluffy down on a slide to see what it looked like on the microscope. Quite a beautiful subject to study. The top shot reminded me a great deal of a grove of alder trees in the winter. The other two get more abstract... a type of image I really enjoy making. I think I'll probably spend a little more time working with this subject.

Beauty can be found in some of the most unexpected places, I like the first image the best. It does look like a grove of alders, would make a nice photograph for framing I think. Thanks Charlie. Very Happy

That is funny Ken. When I saw the first image, I thought I was looking at an image of trees. It would make a great wall hanging Very Happy

Great images, as always, Charlie, and I agree with Sue about the wall hanging

Those are very ugly pictures, Charlie!!!

Of course they are not but I thought I'd write something different for a change! Just getting compliments is not good for a person! Smile

Keep up the good work! I wish I had more time for microscopy. Too much work. Sad
