Sunday Photo Reflection #15: Wild Flower & The Bee

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.

  2. Well, this photo has much to comment upon! Firstly, it is Spotted knapweed (Centaurea stoebe) an invasive from Europe, the bane of hay farmers. Unwittingly, you have also caught a spider in the act of predation. That bee isn’t just hanging there, a spider has it in its clutches and will be having it for dinner. Law of the jungle!
