I caught two different kinds of pollinators working their magic at the Desert Botanical Garden this weekend. This busy honeybee was checking out these prickly pear blooms. I don't blame the little fellow, those are three gorgeous cactus flowers.
This bumblebee and a friend who escaped my camera were working on the ocotillo blooms. We humans tend to like the honeybees more than the bumblebees but, they both play an important role in plant pollination.
All of the ocotillo in the garden were looking very pretty with their red blooms at the top of those long arms. No wonder those bees were attracted to them.
