About Today’s Photo:
The globe thistles in our ornamental garden are blooming right now, and, as usual, they are attracting every kind of pollenator known to man. It’s a pretty crowded place with sometimes 3 or 4 bees, flies, or whatever feeding at one blossom. This tricolored bumble bee was one happy camper!
