Rachel Marietta Mills, of Wesley Chapel, caught this honey bee stopping by for a sip from a Florida tasselflower. Honey bees can thrive in natural or domesticated environments, though they prefer to live in gardens, woodlands, orchards, meadows and other areas where flowering plants are abundant. Even though the tasselflower is a weed, it’s also a pollinator magnet. Butterflies, bees and wasps are drawn to this lowly member of the aster family.
