Bailey walking through my field yesterday I saw  abunch of bees in the thistle. Its neat to see them digging way down deep into the flower so much they almost disappear inside the flower. I also noticed a few that looked as if they came in to fast and were impaled on the spikes. I had my niece with me and she was amazed by all the different bugs that cover these plants
