About This Image

I didn't notice the Hover Flies in the thistle when I took this image. After I saw them I was surprised that they weren't bees in spite of their looks. And 'Horrible Thistle' is the name of this plant. Go figure!

have just spotted this one, Vicki, it's very eye-catching. Love the curved form of the thistle, and the butterfly just tops it off, hanging there like a piece of stained glass. background very effective also :)

Thank you for your positive compliment. I rather enjoy your pieces too - even when I can't always take time to comment. Vicki

This is one of my favorites. Great shot!

No apologies needed, Anne. They look more like bees to me too! I really try to find out the names of critters I post on here - there's always something to learn - for me, anyway. I'm glad you enjoyed the image. Vicki

Vicki - I noticed that after I had commented and took a better look. *LOL* Please forgive me. (HUG) A great picture anyway. *grin*

Thank you for your comments,Tania, Carol, Anne and Alex. There was a gator swimming in the lake at the same time I got this - but it was on the other side! I think you're right about it being the national flower of Scotland, Anne. I rather like them. But those aren't bees - I really had to do my homework to confirm that fact - they are called 'Hover Flies'. Vicki

WOW!! very nice.

Just as the bees and the butterfly, I love thistles. People used to say I was as prickly as one. *LOL* But, back to picture, I believe thistles are Scotland's National Flower but I am probably wrong. *LOL* Wonderful picture.
