    on a side note: those seedpods actualy explode with great force when disturbed
    when they are ripe and can throw the seeds over several yards.
    If u ever see these things and there are small children around tell them to go
    pick some of those pods and get some candid shots of their reaction :p
    oh yeah, the sap from the leafs is an awsome remedy for nettle and insect stings.

    These remind me of my own attempts to photograph this weed. While three years ago, it was still scarce and few and far between, this summer it was just about EVERYWHERE, large areas had been ALL covered with this, all to the left and the right of the river - and beyond. Even though the flowers are pretty, this summer I got the slightly dreadful feeling as if they were finally "taking over".

    lol yeah, its an invase little guy isnt it :p
    luckily they are fairly easy to remove if the ground isnt too hard
    cuz the root doesnt dig very deep so u can just grab em by the top and pull em
    out root n all.
    im not sure how hard it will compete with other plants allready there though.
    out here it seems to be getting along fine with the others as it doesnt make alot of
    shade or take up alot of space in the ground with its roots.

    don't know if you were going for a dark look, but they both seem kind of underexposed

    i did do some retouching and exaggurated that a bit for effect,
    but i was shooting handheld and i didnt want to go higher then ISO 200.
    also i was a bit worried about the white in the flower.

    as usual i think i need to wait for better weather.
    this was shot on a cloudy day in the shadow of a large building.
