Yellow Faced Bumble Bee visiting Margarita Bop Blossoms


The yellow faced bumble bee bombus vosnesenskii spent time with the Margarita Bop penstemon blossoms.

This native plant is only one of 250 penstemon species, most of which are native to western North America.

This is a large bee, and it looked funny as it squeezed itself into the blossom, in search of nectar and pollen. Apparently the bee is dusted with pollen while in the blossom, on their backs.

Here the bee is climbing up into another blossom.

And now grabbing onto another blossom
