On Monday's outing in the snow, I came across some thistle and teazle and thought they were pretty interesting.

The snow was being blown by the wind and only one side of them was covered.I had to grab the stalks while I was shooting to keep them in focus. Can you tell which is the thistle and which is the teazle?

One of the plants had an industrial use. It was used by fullers to comb cloth.

The other just sticks to your clothes and gets caught in your pets fur. Can you tell the difference?
