While photographing in my largest wildflower garden, a Bumble Bee flew to a patch of Gray-headed Sunflowers and foraged for a long time on one of the coneflower heads. I always love seeing the pollinators at work … without them, our world would be a lot less colorful! Here is one of my favorite images (unfortunately, I couldn’t get a good head-on shot, so I had to settle on this angle):
