Thistle-plucker by Isaac Aylward, UK. Isaac composed this tableau with the sea of soft purple knapweed behind, accentuating the clashing red of the linnet’s plumage. He caught up with the tiny bird when it settled to feed on a thistle flowerhead. From the florets that were ripening, it pulled out the little seed parachutes one by one, deftly nipped off the seeds and discarded the feathery down.
