In honor of Pollinator Week, some of our pollinator visitors
So happy to see pollinators enjoying the native habitat we created for them!

A flower fly approaching the first blossom on one of our Island Mallow Malva assurgentiflora shrubs. It looks like the fly already has some of flower's pollen on its feet.
This 10-spot ladybird seems to be resting in one of the flower spikes of the Pozo Blue sage shrub.
A hover fly resting on a leaf of a Seacliff buckwheat Eriogonum parvifolium.
