Photos of birds, fish, flowers and miscellaneous things that catch my eye and instill a sense of wonder.

What Pollinates a Snapdragon?
Yellow Snapdragon at Armstrong Nursery.
Southern California fall colors (grin)... However does a bee get into a snapdragon? It doesn't. Apparently, snapdragons are pollinated by bumblebees that either power through the opening or chew through the side of the flower. Honeybees are pretty much locked out.
