That's it! lol, thanks.

(would be cool to have an app where you take a pic, and it searches/match it to a database and tells you what it is).

Strangely enough, I couldn't find anything on Google. It looked like a thistle to me so I was searching for Oregon thistle. Nothing. But I did find it on Bing using the same parameters, which led me to the Teasel.

My Google-fu is strong!

That wouldn't be possible since the differences between species and even genera can't be identified by a picture. Many flowering plants need to be in flower to be properly identified, certain parts of the plants show certain differences...

I want to create an electronic key for my site but it would take a whole team of people to complete. The key for North America is 30 volumes!
