“Tender-handed stroke a nettle,
And it stings you for your pains;
Grasp it like a man of mettle,
And it soft as silk remains.” ~ Aaron Hill

    Your photo captures the nettle in detail, and it seems as if I could feel the pain if I accidentally touched the needles. It is an amazing picture.

    Great macro, I can see all those nasty little hypodermic needles just waiting.. I somehow manage to make mistakes around them and sting for hours. I wouldn’t have the nerve to grab nettles boldly, I think I would pay, but interesting poem..
