I have posted several shot of the Daisy Fleabane and the pollinators that visit there. So yesterday I took several more shots of them and of the little Sweat Bees that drop by for a fill-up. As I was watching several fly around I thought I should take a picture tat gave you all an idea of their sizes. The first shot is of a Fleabane along side of my Wedding Band by comparison. The second is of one the Sweat Bees on a Fleabane so you can see their size by comparison.
Those of you who follow this blog get to see a lot of Fleabane pictures posted here. I have only recently began to see these wonderful little pollination stations as anything other than a weed. In that space I found several types of Fleabane on our place.We have the Common or Philadelphia Fleabane as well as the Daisy Fleabane. Daisy Fleabane has done very well around the old Eagle Talon carcass in my yard this year. My discovering the awesomeness of these little plants is a recent thing as I mentioned earlier. As life heated up several years ago I retreated to nature to find space to deal with life and death. One of the things I noticed is that they start closing up around dusk and close up till morning. So here is a Fleabane heading to bed.
