I'm in central Oklahoma and can't figure out what flower this is for the life of me.
The blooms appears to be similar to a Monarda Fitulosa (Wild Bergamot or Bee balm), but the bean-pod looking things coming from underneath the bloom are strange, and the leaf pattern is definitely not M. Fitulosa.
There was a row of these plants (wild setting) about 40 yards long and the individual plants were around head height (some shorter, some way taller).
The bees were really working them hard along with a host of other insects (Big moths, butterflies, bumbles).
EDIT: Apparently the photos didn't post. I do not have enough posts in the forum to put up a link. Thanks anyway
Also, those of us overseas cannot see pictures that are not inlaid into the forum. Image hosting websites are strictly blocked on military domains, so when people use links to photo servers in their posts like Flickr and Imageshack, all we see is a warning message like "Content blocked: Photos/File sharing/Forums". So much for all those beautiful bee pic threads...
