Sweetly Scented Thistle....

By Mrsbass
Good evening everyone,

Not the type of photograph you probably would expect from me especially with it being a Saturday (don't worry I had two bands for the price of one last night so lots of images to post over the next day or so) but I've had the most fabulous day today shooting insects and flowers at Hardwick Hall Park in Derbyshire, and for me this little guy was the star of the show!

Thanks for your very kind words and votes on my last upload and a special thanks to John for his user award - all are very much appreciated.

Best wishes
