Bright-Eyed and Bushy-Tailed Pollinator of Flowers by 

A purple coneflower ( Genus Echinacea ) provides ample pollen for this Yellow-faced Bumble Bee ( Bombus vosnesenskii ). A small swarm of these fuzzy bees diligently collected their booty from a striking cluster of Echinacea blossoms, all within arm’s reach of a park bench.
