I am ashamed to say that I stroll by this plant often and never give it a glance.
Yesterday, I got closer than usual and a swarm flew up.
What was that?
I took a closer look as the swarm settled back down.
Each bee or wasp chose a black eye and began busily combing over it.
Some bees had legs that were covered in deep yellow pollen.
The batch of Rudbeckia hirta/ Black-eyed Susan flowers was as busy as a city airport.
It is one of only a few flowers blooming in full as August approaches.
I shall be more observant from now on as I buzz by.
FLOW in the KNOW
