    Picture taken last Sunday in Aguda, a fishing village close to Porto (Portugal) which doubles as a Summer resort. A considerable area of sand dunes has been fenced off to allow some vegetation to escape trampling. This Centaurea has chosen to live dangerously just outside the fence - which, however, made it all the easier to photograph.

    Very nice plant, I like the colors. The way the leaves seem textured is interesting.
