Gathering Pollen

The field thistles see plenty of traffic these days. Although honeybee visitors are scarce, there are plenty of native bees gathering pollen.

I'm loving my new macro feature. It's opening a whole new world. Have you determined what kind of thistle?

I love these, with their pollen baskets full.

Cathy, it seems to be a Field Thistle, although I haven't gotten really technical in species ID.

Brett, they are cute, aren't they?
