Honey bees like one depicted really enjoy visiting their Solidago whose nectar flavor is incredible heck, after buzzing around from one flower to different flower collecting pollen all day having some is refreshing.

Solidago (genus) commonly known as Goldenrod is a herbaceous, perennial, wildflower named for its vivid golden-yellow numerous, tiny flowers that bristle these two to three-foot tall plants stalks.

A hardy, very aggressive, spreader, this weed can take over an area if allowed, is a member of huge Aster flowering plants family native to North America,  growing as wildflowers in pastures and along roadsides.

Another famous related Aster family member sharing same pastures and roadsides is the Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta), both attract and are a food source for Monarch, Clouded Sulfur, American Small Copper, and Gray Hairstreak butterflies.

The Goldenrod is also a great food and pollen source for wild bees like the one in our picture.
