I have posted Teasels here before but those images were taken while the teasel was in bloom and today I am posting autumn teasels with dried flower heads. I was photographing sparrows on a wild rose bush and when the birds weren’t around I turned my lens towards the teasels that were on the east side of the rose bush. The teasels at the top were in full light with dried grasses in the background and I quite liked the warm tones in the image.
Then I aimed my lens down towards some teasels that had side light on them with the shade of nearby trees in the background and I like the contrast between the warm and cool tones in the frame. I like playing with light.
I did get some images of the Song and White-crowned Sparrows on the wild rose and I like how this Song Sparrow had its back to me but gave me a nice head turn over its shoulder.
Life is good.
PS, Teasels are an invasive plant
