It certainly qualifies in my view, Gary. This is a particularly beautiful example, delightfully poised. Lovely shot.

Thistle do nicely as another fine addition to your series on wild flowers Gary, the colour and detail are excellent and it will go down very well with our friends from North of the border no doubt

It certainly will qualify as a wild flower but I won't remind you of it's place in Scottish history!

Definitely qualifies Gary. Don't worry quite a few people didn't realise Stan is my photo buddy. He spends ages in the hide with me and loves it. He especially likes it when the squirrels turn up. Lovely shot. I know someone who had a bridal bouquet of thistles and yes she was Scottish. Cathy
