Delaware Wildflowers

These wildflowers are all native to Delaware.  They add to the beauty of the landscape and provide food and habitat for a variety of species.  The two last photos of the Swamp Rose show a bumble bee and an Augochlora Green Metallic Bee gathering pollen.  Have you ever seen an Augochlora Green Metallic Bee before?

    Looks like a Metallic Green Bee, but if it has a yellow striped bottom…it is a Green Bee…Long antaenees? Male.
