I am a bee. This guy didn't know for several days I photobombed his flower picture.

Thistles Progress.
Welp, it's reached 10 foot (AGL) and is showing signs of exhaustion, the bees have enjoyed its nectar for a few weeks and the blooms are fading.-?
We - (meaning me and SWMBO) reluctantly decided this morning - that it had to come down. The heads are now drying out in the summerhouse to get the seeds and I hope we can start a new life cycle for it next year.:-)

I have taken this with my new EF16-35mm L IS USM just to give it a try before I introduce it to the world.

I think if you cleaned up a bit esp. on the left this could be a framer.

Ray that's some thistle!
I trust you're careful as you fall it :-P Don't drop it on the wife!
Chainsaw job?  :p

AGL? Is that a British measure?

OK John - Thanks for your comments - no problem. I was thinking of cleaning the picture up a bit before I posted it but I did not intend it for an exhibition shot. Anyway, I have taken that bit of foliage out of the left hand side and taken the birds out - they were rather distant and looked like dust on the sensor.-? It has improved the picture - thanks.:-)

Tread carefully, Richard - she was not happy with it because it was apparently overpowering the honeysuckle.
Chainsaw not necessary - I used the long handled loppers - but the trunk was thick and it was surprisingly heavy for a thistle. Subsequently 'plant DNA' revealed it was of Scottish descent so I walked around it with a haggis and played a lament on the bagpipes. - (If you believe that, you'll believe anything):-D :p

Come on; Richard -?- - - AGL (Above Ground Level) Measure it in whatever units you like providing you state what they are - Feet, inches, cms, metres, perches, poles, chains or barleycorns or whatever.:-)
Especially for you Richard - here is an interesting link - it takes me back to my early schooldays - blimey.-?

Well that's all very interesting Ray.
I was trying to think what height datum you were using and the obvious passed me by :-x
Barleycorn. New one on me. Thanks for that.

Actually, height above ground is a lot more meaningful.
Well it is until the excavator moves in and takes out couple metres, many barleycorns of dirt and "Now where was that supposed to be built to?" :rolleyes:
Then! That's where datums, proper ones, fall into place :-P

Flowers! Sorry, realised we're talking about flowers.
Must say that's some thistle, or was
