This was a popular flower with a bee (wasp, hoverfly?), a moth (?) and a tiny green Aphid. Taken on 27 August 2013, when I was at Pearce Estate (near Inglewood Bird Sanctuary). Came across the image when I was looking late last night for something cheery to post, lol. It snowed again all yesterday, giving us maybe another three inches. Gone is the wonderful, sunny, comparatively mild weather, which was appreciated so much, and in its place we have an overcast sky that looks like it might bring more snow. It's -15C, windchill -24C and it looks from the forecast like we should be getting about nine days with some sun, and then days of snow - again! This golden flower is for anyone who has had enough of winter already and we are still barely more than mid-way! Definitely a winter to remember!

I'm happy to enjoy this popular golden flower right now! We have similar temperatures and wind chills to you today, except we didn't get any snow. I'm glad about that. I guess the midwinter warm spell is over for now...

I think this is a Anthidium manicatum, common name European Wool Carder Bee ... but not positive ... if it is, it is a rare sighting. There have been sightings in NA and in Alberta ... difficult to tell from the photo ... you may want to crop this and lighten it up for the details ... here is some info on this Bee ...
