There is a purple flower half way down the left hand side of photo 1 which blurs when I blow it up. Could you take a closeup?

I think the purple flower is unrelated and looks like patersons curse

Carthamus lanatus has yellow flowers. This looks as if it is going to have purple flowers. Though all the purple flowered thistles I know about have winged stems.

I think the purple flower is Paterson's curse which is in the area.

Carthamus lanatus is widespread in the area but not yet flowering so I haven't taken photos.
