Leucanthemum vulgare (Oxeye daisy) and Bombus ternarius (Orange-belted bumblebee)

Dancing with bumblebees

A hundred million years ago, bees evolved from wasps and co-incidentally, flowering plants (angiosperms) responded with an explosion of species diversity. Bees developed specialized mouth parts and pollen baskets to take advantage of flowers, and flowers, in their turn, increased pollen and nectar production to attract these dedicated pollinators. 

The results of the Great Cretaceous Angiosperm Radiation are everywhere you look, as evidenced by this native Orange-belted bumblebee and this European oxeye daisy in one of my local parks.

Weekend garden.

Lilacs underfoot like snowdrifts, the unfurling of the first irises. The climbing roses, having finally scaled the porch railing, threaten to be absolute bombshells in the next few weeks. Photographing the myriad of columbines as if I had never seen them before in my life.
