This is a lovely violet tree dahlia on the road from Bogotá to Choachi. Normally I’d point out the bee crawling around in the center, but then I’d be corrected yet again and told that it’s actually a hoverfly. So let’s hear it for the hoverfly! You guys better not come back and tell me that this time it really is a bee.
UPDATE: It’s a honeybee. Sigh.
