A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Occasionally when walking around cow paddocks, one comes across a Scotch Thistle.  Definitely not an endemic species, and one can't help but wonder what relationship the seeds of the thistle have to the digestive system of a cow, but there's definitely a correlation.

Oh thank you. I've heard the name and seen pictures and drawings of the plant, but it's the first time I've seen them together. :)

Interesting and dangerous looking flower. Fantastic color.

"Louis" of SF Bay might know what the correlation is. :)
