Spot The Pollinator #8

If last week was the native plant edition, this one seems to be the edible garden one.  Pollinators have been busy amongst the edibles.

Mystery bug on calendula.  What is it? A pollinator or pest or?

Busy honey bee on zucchini flower.

These little black bugs like to hang out on the carrot flowers.  I assume they are pollinators.  They might be small carpenter bees.  What do you think?

Okay, now your turn!  Link up your insect photos or share them on social media with the hashtag #spotthepollinator.  And, if you are looking to identify those pollinators, a great source is The Pollinator Project

Great minds think alike; I added a carrot flower shot too!

Love the fat bumble bee on your zucchini flower. I hope I have lots of these buzzing around my squash right now.

Carrot flowers seem to be the predominant flower I have blooming in the veggie garden. I let one go to seed last year and now they are everywhere - which is okay. Free flowers and, if I catch them in time and they aren't in too rocky soil, free carrots!
