Wouldn't You Rather Have Clover?

Apparently not.  These guys seem perfectly content with their prickly thistle snack.

  1. We have thistle in the Everglades, but it's the least of our worries. I have a rash on my hand that I can't figure out what it's from, whether it was poison ivy or poison wood or something else. The mysteries in the swamp never end!

  2. Hi Janie, That thistle must not be 'prickly' to those bees... Ya think???? Interesting... Wish they could talk to us and tell us WHY... ha

    Hope you have a great weekend.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  5. Whatever about the thistle being prickly, take a look at the fantastic colour. Looks like those bees are enjoying themselves.

  12. Love the bumble bee photo, they just don't get the attention they deserve. They are great little native pollinators. It was nice to see it featured.
