About Today’s Photo:
The hydrangea on our back patio is in full bloom now, and a large cast of pollinators are busy lapping up the nector. The hydrangea’s larger white flowers are sterile and act as nice big lures to draw pollinators into the fertile flowerettes. This eastern carpenter bee (ID?) had no problem zeroing in on the good stuff. This appears to be a pretty good year for honey bees at our house as I’d wager 80% of the pollinators at this busy feeding place were honey bees.
