Sometimes people confuse this plant with Thistle, but it is actually teasel. It is widespread through Ohio. The brown stalks are a sure marker of Fall around the corner.
I finally hand held a shot without wiggling and did a lot of playing with dof with my 60mm! We have had rain for 4 days now, so this was taken under threatening skies. It is not cropped. There is a second one too if you want to tell me what you think..
