Sometimes I look through my camera and get surprised.
I got a surprise while photographing one of the Spiderworts.
It had tiny flying insects hanging onto its stamen.
Not hoovering like a normal bee, but tucked into the flower.
This Spiderwort is Tradescantia ‘Zwanenburg Blue.’
Its flowers close during the heat of the day and in wind.
It likes moist conditions, but I have had some rot if kept too wet.
It is deer resistant. A feature that is much needed now that my garden is a deer delicatessen.
