SHARING the NECTAR

When I was taking the photos for yesterday's post in my garden, I noticed these 2 little winged friends sharing the nectar of coneflowers.

I'm afraid that is pollen (really visible enlarged) where the center and the petals meet - no wonder we're all sick with allergies!

Sharing a nice nectar!
