If you want to see the tiniest of pollinators, plant
Cilantro and let it blossom. I was just barely able to
see this little guy flying among the flowers in my garden.
The bees and flies love Cilantro - it has pink pollen!

This colorful fly is very beneficial as it eats aphids, thrips
and small caterpillars in the larval stage and as an adult it
pollinates by dining on pollen. I am always amazed
I find a new species of Syrphid Fly--there are so many
abdominal patterns. © Carol Davis, 8-16-2010, Promontory Point
