Ironweed time

A view of the ironweed this morning.
It has a very tall but tiny sunflower in the background.
This morning I saw another fancy bee! Paula saw another of these, the two-spotted longhorn bee, on loofahs recently.
Here are its distinctive two spots.
Yesterday I saw a Bombus pennsylvanicus.
Another Bombus pennsylvanicus, two days ago. These on the ironweeds have been the first ones I’ve seen this year.
