Koper, Slovenia

You may not be tuned in to the smell of a thistle, but the smell wasn't made to attract you. It was made to attract pollinators like this moth. Attraction is one of the great forces of nature, but so is repulsion. Both are part of this tableau vivant. See those nasty prickles under the pretty flower? They repulse everything. Eeyore excepted.
