Echinacea & bee (Echinacea purpurea (Coneflower))

The bee stayed there for a long time - I thought he was stuck!

Very responsible bee.... If you drink, don't fly!! lol....Do you notice that the white Echis are smaller plants with less vigor?

This is one in a large clump, Lori - so not in this case. It likes it where it is, obviously! Yes, a very well-behaved bee....;-))

I planted my white echi among the pink ones...and it was totally engulfed the first season...the plant was in the same soil and getting the same light and water...but it was a more compact plant. The season after that I couldn't find it at all...however, this season I've found four different plants among the pink ones...just goes to show you can't count an echi out!

Fantastic photo Spritz, I think they must fall asleep on flowers because I`ve noticed bees on flowers and not moving for ages.

Well done, Lori - glad to hear it.

Thanks, Sandra...it is strange, isn't it!

Not just a moment - I could have gone away for a lie-down, come back and taken another photo, Flori! LOL.
