Whatever that bloom is, it's pollen sure attracts the pollinators from birds to insects!
Great close in shot and all in focus too! I don't recognize either the flower or the beetles, must be more local to California... Guess you're going to have to get a California bug and flower book for your collection! LOL
I think for California you'll have to settle for "yellow flower" and big blue-green beetles". LOL
i had shag carpet like that once.
I never seen anything like this before. Very nice capture!
Cute title! Looks like quite a flower! (I can't believe how small the hummer from yesterday looks next to it)
