Earlier this summer I was strolling through a meadow looking for place to picnic and thought this spot was perfectly dreamy. No sooner had I settled in before bees started arriving. We cohabitated safely—me reading and they doing what bees do when they find a good flower.
With my trusty iPhone, captured this bee doing aerial gymnastics. As for the flower, I don’t know it’s name so I’ll just call it “purple mop head” 😊 If you know it, please name it🙏🏽. Happy Sunday!
UPDATE: Thanks to Eliza I now know the “purple mop head” is the Spotted knapweed (Centaurea stoebe).
Thank you for journeying along.
