Close Up of a Bug on a FlowerOn a recent trip into Spearfish Canyon my girlfriend and I had a nice picnic at a spot near Spearfish Creek.  There were lots of wildflowers in bloom and the bugs were really taking note.  I got to looking at the flowers and the bugs they were hosting and this one caught my eye.  This little bug was wallowing in pollen from this freshly opened flower.  Unfortunately I have no idea what species the flower or the bug belong to.  If you know please comment here so that I can label this post more completely.
