|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This thistle photo was taken near the lake at the Tilikum Retreat center where the organization I work for goes every year for 3 days of training and fun. This is the first year in the 8 years I've been going I took my camera, and although there weren't many wildflowers to photograph, this one I thought was pretty in it's own "prickly" way. |

I don't know too much about thistles but there's a bunch of information on this page.
Most thistles in the western United States are native species that generally go unnoticed and likely will never cause significant losses as weeds. However, thistle species introduced from Europe, Africa, and Asia can be very aggressive opportunists. They often invade overused or otherwise disturbed land. The plants spread rapidly, out-compete established and introduced plant species for nutrients, and can render pastures, rangeland, and forests nearly unusable.
