Insect on bee plant
« on: December 22, 2006, 10:58:20 AM »
This pic was taken in July of this summer past, the picture is not over clear, it is foraging on phacelia tanacetifolia (blue tansy).  I have seen this insect many times, but not able to identify it.  Any insect gurus out there that may be able to identify it.  Good luck, I am rather curious, I am sure it is some kind of beneficial, maybe it pollinates plants that bees do not, I don't know.  Great day.

There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.  The Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold.  The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, but the queerest they ever did see, what the night on the marge of Lake Lebarge, I cremated Sam McGee.  Robert Service
