Cirsium heterophyllum Melancholy Thistle. It shows.

From the Wikipedia page

The plant was considered a possible cure for sadness. Nicholas Culpepper in 1669 said that it "makes a man as merry as a cricket".

A very crisp rendition of the Jimsonweed indeed. Good that the smell and poisons remain locked inside the photo :)

Yes, I raise these flowers. Here is another variety and, in winter, in a small studio, even the smell of of these flowers (and plants) is overpowering and potentially dangerous.

A Christmas Rose Helleborus cultiv. up close. Nikon D3200 (built-in Baader U filter) UV-Nikkor 105mm f/4.5 lens, Broncolor studio flash. 40 frames stacked in Zerene.



It is recommended to open the image in a separate tag and click it to up to full size. The amount of detail is staggering. Do note this is a 100% crop of the original.
