Pollen-faced Honeybee on a Cone Flower

The flower is aging a little…but there’s still pollen (and harvesting) a good while after the petals fade and curl and fall.

This little one was so excited – moved so quickly. Very pleased that I got a shot of her face with pollen all over. The cone flowers are so attractive to the pollinators. Neat mid-summer to fall bloom.
