Apparently, Bull Thistle is an unregulated, noxious weed.
That may be true, but I didn’t see “weed“, but rather, a very interesting flower form, full of opposing textures – soft on top, prickly on the bottom.
And, the bees LOVE this plant!
While I was shooting, there were numerous bumbles flitting from flower to flower. I did get some images with bees included, but I wanted this unusual flower to be center stage.
Soooo, one man’s weed is this woman’s shot of the day! 🙂
