The theme for the week's Photo Hunt is itchy. Okay s this nettle is initially sting-y, it soon itches like hell

Cool photo. I don't have any personal experience with a nettle but it does look itchy. Happy weekend!

I expected an itchy cat! But this is a much better photo. I hate nettles, they were the bane of my childhood.

Oh the dreaded nettle. Your photo makes me want to go and grab my gaiters! When I saw this week's theme I immediately thought of all the itchy hikes I've had, but I didn't have a single picture of the prickly plants!

Is that a ladybird on the nettle? I wonder if it's itch resistant?

Randi said...

I agree...I hate nettles in the garden...perfect choice for this hard theme.

Ouch! Nettles are definitely itchy winners.

So I guess it wouldn't be worth it to leap at that plant to capture the yummy ladybug.

Nice shot. I remember being stung by nettles as a child. Horrible!

EastCoastLife said...

I've never been stung by nettle, so I cannot imagine how itchy it will be. :P
