Photos of Bees on Echinacea Flowers

Category Garden
These pretty flowers attract both bees and butterflies. They are native to the eastern and central areas in the U.S., but do well in many other growing zones. These lovely photos capture some of their visitors.

Photo Description
After reading how important planting native plants are to the health of bees, butterflies, birds, native animals and the environment, I am adding more native plants to my little "Mom's Memorial Garden".

So I was delighted to see 3 butterflies and a bee on my echinacea (purple coneflower) plant when I stepped out of my house today! Can you spot them?

I love butterflies and this was a real treat to see, so I thought I'd share this happy photo!

I hope you consider planting more native plants in your gardens too!

"Hands down, hold still, it's a bee!" The petals of the flowers, for some reason, were all in a "down" position while the bee was pollinating. Was it out of fear for the bee? Of course not, but it was kind of interesting to see the unusual position of the flower petals.

I took this photo of a honey bee on an echinacea flower while we were visiting the zoo. I love watching bees as they collect pollen and echinacea are one of my favorite flowers.
