    What a great capture with the bee right there! Would you happen to know what type of thistle it is?

  • I’ve been told it is a milk thistle, but I haven’t researched it personally.
    Thank you for the compliment.

    Thistles are nice & bright.

  • Thanks Paul. I was fortunate that this particular thistle had a sunbeam over it when the wind blew the trees just right. So I got really lucky with the bee, the thistle and the sunbeam all in the right place at the right time.
