Bee in Blazing Star (again)

Bee, Blazing Star, Kennebunk Plains WMA, W. Kennebunk Maine

Here is it the last day of August and the Northern Blazing Star is still in full bloom on the Kennebunk Plains Wildlife Management Area in West Kennebunk Maine. If memory serves, it was pretty much past by now other years. There were not as many butterflies working the blooms yesterday, but still lots of bees. Big furry bees. I am not sure what the photobombing insect is on the left…I never got a good look at it though it dove through the fame serveral times. It seemed to be harassing the bee…I have no idea why.
