Life on a Prairie Coneflower Blossom
While roaming an extensive patch of prairie coneflowers today I noticed this one coneflower blossom in particular. On the center of the blossom were two hoverflies and one small caterpillar. Why this blossom hosted three insects while the others had none I cannot explain. I do know it was interesting to find them, but as often happens, one observation leads to many more questions than answers.
