A Wildlife Gunslinger.
It's a very good don't Know! Have a good week.
That my friend is a thistle, at least it looks like the flower of a thistle. Very much like the Canadian thistle. Can't tell for sure as the leaves are not visible.
Great macro Keith. Looks like a Spear Thistle to me!...[;o)
Thanks Adrian.Sun shining here at the moment, but cold.Thanks Horst. I think you're right with thistle, but the lack of leaves makes it difficult to ID properly.Trevor, it could well be. I usually take a couple of general shots of just the leaves to help with ID later.I think I must have deleted them this time lol
Hi Keith...brain cramp? lolLooks like a thistle to me...which on I don't know!!It is a beauty, but not always welcome in the garden!! lolHope you memorie gets better as the week goes on!! lol ; } Hugs Grace
Grace, brain cramp happens a lot these days lolI'm sure it's a thistle of some sort.Thanks Theresa. :-)
It is a Thistle, what sort, well I can't tell you, I didn't even know there was more.
Love the purple in this thistle, great capture.
Thanks Bob. So many look the same :-)Thank you Gillian. :-)
I'd have to agree with Thistle. They attract Goldfinches in late summer. Such a lovely macro.
Thanks Hilary. A thistle, yea. Just wish I could remember which one lol
Great photo of the thistle
Great capture of the Scottish thistle!! I must show my husband this one - he has Scottish heritage but I won't hold that against him... hahaha.
Thanks Liz; yea, neither will I lol
Yes, Scotch thistles are a common nuisance in Australia but have a real beauty too. Their seeds float on the wind in spherical feathery balls.
Pieces of Sunshine, thank you for stopping by, and your comment. :-)
