Van Dyke’s bumblebee / Bombus vandykei (probable identification) visiting a borage flower (Borago officinalis). If I had only space for one plant for the bees, borage would be my choice. It’s irresistible to a diverse array of bees with plentiful blooms from spring to fall, and there’s the added bonus of tasty edible flowers. #borage #bombusvandykei #boragoofficinalis #found_on_flowers #bumblebees #macroclique #macroworld_tr #pollinators #beegarden #nature #mat_macro #kings_insects #tgif_insects #bugs #insects #insects_of_instagram #insects_of_our_world #macro_brilliance #macro_perfection #macro_x #beesandflowers

The bees are wise. Borage is wonderful.
