Leaf Cutting Bee on the Chim Chiminee
So nice to see a leaf cutting bee on the Rudbeckia hirta "Chim Chiminee".
This is a hard to find "Black Eyed Susan" that I purchased from Annies Annuals https://www.anniesannuals.com/ as a seedling.
Although I planted it as a nectar plant for butterflies, it's great to see that bees are getting nourishment from it, as well.
The plant is getting quite tall in its pot, full of blossoms, as you can see from its shadow on the patio surface.
