All the Pretty Little Flowers 4: The Residents

Now we’ve talked a lot about how important wildflowers are in general for all kinds of lovely critters, so here they are.

Teensy tiny bees. The flower has at most a diameter of 15-20 mm. The bee is the size of my pinky finger nail.

A very fat fly. Probably one of those that try to eat us alive.

    The antennae of that beast don’t look like fly to me.
    I think it’s some solitary bee.

    I’m fairly sure that the little green-pink metallic critter is a cuckoo wasp, family Chrysididae. They are gorgeous.

  3. wereatheist says

    I don’t think so: in the first pic something like an antenna extends apparently to the left of the critter’s head.
    In the second, something extends to the right. The view to the flower is very much the same in both pictures.

    Oh, I just see that there was a misunderstanding. I thought you were talking about the critter in the last picture. Also, taht’s a badly named creature if there ever was one. Golden wasp????
