I don't usually see more than one bee on the same flower at the same time so I became very curious about these two. The bee on the left was also slightly larger than the one on the right. They were both covered in pollen.
The larger bee worked quickly and soon made her way around to the other side of the Gaillardia flower.
They finally met here, and that's when the smaller bee immediately flew off.I guess it was just a little too close.
