another visitor to a very busy sedum, don't know the species
thanks to a member of the fb page Texas plants and invertebrates for help with this id
black to grey in color it was hard to get photo of it too fast but its enjoying the canyon creek abelia
Glossy Abelia (Abelia × grandiflora)
They really like the dwarf melon flowers. Perhaps because there's much less competition from carpenter bees than in the squash blossoms.
I am interested in seeing what kind of pollinators people find in their area. Some think it is just honey bees, but it is so much more than that.
Butterflies, skippers, moths, , birds, bats, beetles, flies, mosquitoes, ants, wasps and bees.
What are you seeing on the flowers right now?
