Lambs ears are starting to bloom



The week has been mostly cloudy, cool and very breezy.

But it looks like the very warm weather we had last weekend encouraged the lambs' ears to start to bloom.


As soon as they bloom, bees, lady bugs and other beetles are immediately attracted to the blossoms for the nectar.

Here is a Yellow-faced bumble bee Bombus vosnesenskii visiting.

If you look closely you'll see a smaller insect on the plant.

From the bee it is located diagonally lower right.












The same bee from the rear, with its distinguishing yellow stripe.

I always marvel at the fact that this fuzzy flying teddy bear-like bee has such thin little legs.
