Found it on our farm.
I can't be positive from that picture but I think it is teasel. It's an invasive exotic that is taking over road ditches in a lot of areas. It's pretty easy to kill with herbicide but left unchecked, it will shade out everything around it and take over a field. Do a google search for common teasel and see if that matches what it looks like. If not, you might take some pictures of leaves and some of the whole plant and see if I can do better with the ID.
Its Thimbleweed and is common in wooded areas alone ravines or other mesic areas. Otherwise known as Tall Anemone (Anemone virginiana).
Thanks Seth. Thimbleweed is not common in my neighborhood at all so I'm glad you could help out. I might never have got that one.
