Below are some with a visiting Bumblebee.  Unfortunately I couldn’t get any shots with a better view of the Bumblebee.  Which is a shame because they would have been interesting.  He was carrying so much pollen on his legs, it’s amazing he was even able to get airborne.  But with the wind whipping everything around like it was on Monday, it’s a miracle I got any photos at all.  These blooms were swaying all over the place when I took these.
