Artist's Description

A fuzzy bumble bee risks injury to pollinate this prickly pink thistle. It was quite breezy so I also risked personal injury to photograph both of them. I had to hold this thorny plant still with one hand while shooting with the other.
Original photograph with filters and textures.
The thistle is characterized by it’s sharp prickles which cover most of the plant. These protect it from herbivorous animals. The brightly colored flower-head is nestled in a cup shaped collection of green spikes.
