Big thanks goes out to Jesse and Stephen for making this happen. We all ended up with thistles sticking out of legs at the end of this shot. Thistles lined both sides of the grassy trail, and ripped at their legs. I just so happened to be crouching right overtop a whole bunch of them. Jeans would have been a better choice.
