Bumbling Around

My tithonia and hyacinth bean "jungle" is a constant swarm of bird and insect activity. Yesterday, I caught this cute little bumble-bee having lunch on this perfect Mexican sunflower. The picture came out surprisingly well and I thought it would be neat to share. It's amazing how much more wildlife visits my yard now that I have so many plants and flowers. I strongly encourage people to spray insect spray as little as possible so that they too can enjoy all of the exciting and beautiful creatures as they visit. I really enjoy seeing all the butterflies, bees, dragonflies, lizards, and hummingbirds - and so do my kids.

Good capture! Tithonia is finally starting to bloom here. Gulf fritillaries seem to favor those orange flowers. I wonder if they think they're camouflaged?
