Botany picture #38: Carduus nutans

Carduus nutans (Asteraceae, Carduoideae) in Germany, 2005. It appears to have a bumblebee for lunch. Note the nice "arachnoid" hairs on the phyllaries.

There will probably be no large posts until after the weekend because I am doing a lot of manuscript writing at the moment.
