Thistle flower feeding

Back at Wicken Fen . The thistles are towering through the long grasses advertising their nectar to passing insects.

Today there were lots of butterflies at Wicken. This visitor to the thistles was particularly lovely it is a great skipper.

The thistles were often feeding stations to more than one customer . Bees and beetles were also visiting.
