Wasp -- diving down for nectar


This flower didn't make it easy for this wasp to get his noon-time nectar.  He had to climb down through the grove of stamen to find his treasure.  He spent about a minute or two wandering in the tops of the grove, then slowly worked his way around and down to a tasty meal.  All the while, he was doing the flower's work for it -- getting pollen all over his body.
