never thought I'd photograph something I used to pay 5c to the kids to catch, and to rub salt in on a thistle!!
We passed a paddock of brassicas yesterday and the air alive with them and the road littered with dead ones

A pest on a weed!

Insulting the thistle, we respect and worship the thistle in this part of the planet and if our Scottish friends read this you will be banned from the UK forevermore.:-):-)

Hey Avondale! Did you ask if you could borrow my thistle? That could be classed as stealing intellectual property!

No. Seeing you lot sent them out with those earlier stealing vagabonds I thought it fair game  :p

Actually I realised a thistle followed a thistle after I'd posted and admired your little coloured moth. Much prettier than my cabbage moth

You can have the thistles back if you'd like :lol:

Six-spotted Burnet Moth.

Some real nice pics in this thread - I will not even try to compete.
I've not posted here before because I've not been active in this field.
We'll have to see what summer brings!

Haha, thanks for the like. I love the thistle. My birthname is Thistle and it has been said that we descend from the Order of Thistle although, I could never prove that. I could only trace our family back to the Channel Islands in the early 1800's. I have thistle's all over my house and get excited when I see one growing wild on our farm. Even our horses love eating the flower and they always attract butterflies.

If you feel like that about our thistles send ‘em back!-?
But, please keep your 5th generation thieving vagabonds - we have enough already.

Hmm! Not wishing to offend anyone, but it probably hatched-out in our failing state education system.-?

Interesting tracing names - I can only get back to about 1800.

As a special posting from me to you, and apologies for being slightly off thread, here is one I took when I was trying to be artistic.
The Ornamental Scottish Thistle against a background of the iconic Edinburgh Castle.

Let's call it 'Butterfly food'

I think Pippin is a night owl.
He's GMT +9:30. Don't think they have daylight saving.
He will no doubt chide me if I'm erring  :p
I'm GMT +11 (Eastern standard daylight saving time)
We three had better quieten down. Else worse things will happen and the cavalry will send us into exile :rolleyes:

just to revive this after Ray.Petri took it off air :p
These were wafting about whilst I was trying to get birds in view
At one time there was a Bumble Bee as well on the flower.

Avondale - Nice thistle/weed (depending, it seems, on what part of the world) I didn’t declare the thread off air, I am not important enough. it was Myself going off air -? I had some shipping pics to print and file that I had got behind on.

Yes. Just tugging your chain, pulling your leg as we say here  :p
Actually I think it was me that suggested that  :p

That’s OK. i’ve Always worked with a bunch of ‘chain pullers’ although there is a more crude expression I’d usually use. I can’t think of the International Q code for pulling one’s chain :-)
