Not much to say really … apart from these lovely pink thistles were growing all over the local fields at the time and they really caught my eye. I hope they catch yours, too. I thought they might make a change from all the moths …

    1. I appreciate that, Brian, thank you! 🙂 Still being stuck indoors and unable to work I have been going through my photos … and it is amazing what you collect over the years. I have a thing about moths – as you probably already have guessed – and I have many more images to share 🙂

  1. Our thistles are just beginning to grow and form buds — not every species, but some. One thing you can saw about thistles: even with all their prickliness, they’re wonderful for the butterflies and bees.

    1. The insects do love these thistles and they are alive in the summer with buzzing and flittering. Always a joy to see.


    1. Thank you, Rebecca 🙂 The farmers don’t always like them, but thankfully they are allowed to grow on the edge of the fields where they attract a lot of nectar-loving insects.
