Pollen gets sacked

Photo by Ned Harris 11/27/2013

A few hardy bees are out and about, especially around the Sacred Datura (Datura wrightii). Click on the photo for a larger view that more clearly shows the pollen sacs. Especially prominent on the bee in the upper right, farthest from the flower.
Please spread the word to canyon visitors that this plant is toxic. Don't pick the flowers - any flowers, for that matter - and avoid contact with all parts of this plant.
