Hello Ishi,
A new thistle like plant for me, and one which seems to grow quite closely to the ground. The blooms are very pretty and intricately shaped. They remind me of tiny snowflakes. Exceptional detail and just the right exposure. Well done!!

nice dense cluster, you can brighten a bit and increase also contrast
