Pink and gold

closeup of pink poppy with a bug

We found the most amazing poppies walking today.

The bug is not a bee or wasp, but a hoverfly (family Syrphidae); beyond that identification I won’t venture. They feed on nectar and pollen. And you can see the wee bits of pollen dust all over the petal behind it.
