Prairie Thistle

prairie thistles grow in the grasslands of Nebraska

A prairie thistle grows in pastures outside of Cody, Nebraska. Having already flowered, the seeds are nearly ready to be released. The white tufts seen here will split apart. Revealing hundreds of seeds that will be carried by the wind for as far as you can see. See more photos from the America Series here. And follow along on Instagram to see more from this and other projects.
