I thought it was a thistle, but I see that they are thistle-like and in the same family.

That's how bees dive in to get pollen

I think they dive in for the nectar and pick up pollen on their legs and bodies. The pollen is then rubbed off on the next flower.

Bees are an unwitting mechanism in the pollination process.

He is a boxer. His name is Duke. My sister sent the pictures to me. I won't get to see him until August when Hubby and I go to visit.
