Nice , sharp silhouettes, Good blue sky BG.
You're right about common name of some genera like Cardus, Cirsium and even some Centaurea belonging to Asteraceae family.
However, the plant in your photo is a Dipsacus from Dipsaceae family and they have as common name the name of "teasel".
Very short on time this morning.
Nice capture, thanks for posting.
Have a great week.

Hello Tanja, nice shot.
In my humble opinion, the scientific name is "Dipsacus silvestris" and in France we say "Cardère"...
