Even though it is a fairly warm and sunny day here today, we've had several nights with lows in the 20's and that is doing a number on the flowers that were left over from the warm spell recently...and I haven't been posting many flowers lately so I thought this primrose with the huge beetle would be a nice one for us today! I haven't identified this beetle yet but he's not the only one I caught pollinating flowers this summer. They have a very furry "belly" that the pollen sticks to and makes them look like they've been dusted by fairies! Pretty cute! This one really liked the evening primrose pictured here, but I also saw several of his cousins feeding on thistle blossoms. They are a lot like the bumblebees, so busy they don't even notice you taking their picture!
