177. A bit prickly.....

Out with my camera club girls today for a little wander around a wildlife park near us, Wat Tylers Park. Lots of damsel flies, butterflies and wild flowers. Everything that flew was not in great focus, so this thistle with some backlight was the best I could do..... oh, and the coffee afterwards was better!!

Thank you all for your kind visits and comments on my recent cricket photos, I do so appreciate them all.
So dreamy with the wispy feel to the thistle and awesome backlight! Fav.
