Artist's Description

The Thistles are blooming in my yard in Amherst, Virginia, USA !! I’m so happy! I love these…and so do all the insects! :)) Soon they will be all over them! Insect pictures coming soon! :)) This was taken with my Canon Powershot on a macro setting. Straight from the camera.
Thistle is the common name of a group of flowering plants characterised by leaves with sharp prickles on the margins, mostly in the family Asteraceae. Prickles often occur all over the plant – on surfaces such as those of the stem and flat parts of the leaves. These are an adaptation that protects the plant against herbivorous animals, discouraging them from feeding on the plant. Typically, an involucre with a clasping shape of a cup or urn subtends each of a thistle’s flowerheads. (Wikipedia)
