Carpenter bee in the Bird's Eye Gilia patch
Ooh, it's nice to see the carpenter bees enjoying the nectar and pollen of the Bird's-Eye Gilia blossoms.
This bee probably is a male, because of the light colored hairs on the top of its thorax.
Note the pollen on its hairs, leg and head.
Headfirst into the blossom...
...now it is getting covered with all that blue pollen
