A Photo a Day...butterflies, thistle, and a still life...textures

It's been a couple interesting days. My laptop is full, stuffed full of images.  I've been moving around a half terabyte of data the last two days.  I've been moving some of it to an external drive and some to my iMac. It's been digital cleaning to the max. 

I managed to get a some thistle hunting...I am so surprised that's it's so difficult to find in my local area.  I've been driving up and down back roads looking for plants. 

The above is one of my favorite shots...

Have a great week!
