This thorny fellows can be found everywhere around the country side come summer in Israel. They also seem to find open skin with apparent ease, esspecially when on a bike and the thorny end just stick’s in all the more deeply. Saw these against a rock that was all speckled and immediately new what I wanted in the end. The diagonal line just leading the eye across the frame, a dynamic image I hope. The morning warm colours were gave these an almost glow.
