Update: Thank you Heather Mellon for identifying this flower as a member of the "Salvia meadow sage" and now I know what it is...It would be good flower to plant. The bees that were pollinating them seemed to prefer them over the petunias that were planted underneath. The bee was really getting into it here and twisted its body in a different angle.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!

    spot on! deatil and sharpness is fantastic on this bee. Bees are actually very furry. Ashame they dont like to be petted are cuddled.
