I zoomed in on it with my identifier thingy and it said 'honeybee'.  ::)  I suppose that it had no idea about the flower except that it was in the Dicots family which is of no help.

Lower parts of the plant were thorny. Just looked up info on Musk Thistle it's an invasive species, Thanks for the replies.
