Artist's Description

The “common” thistle is originally native to northern Africa, throughout southern Europe and England. The plant is currently found in most regions of North America.

This thistle was in strong direct sunlight, but behind the plant was a very dense wooded area that created a nearly total black-out background. I liked the dramatic contrast, so waited around for a while to see if a “visitor” would drop by. He showed up and I shot him!

This photo was captured along a hiking trail near Lake Jean in Rickett’s Glen State Park in Pennsylvania.

I used a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens on a Canon EOS 10D body @ f/4 with a 1/250 sec exposure, no flash.
