Last fall I had to replace one of the bushes in front of my home before the HOA caught it which they did. While on weed patrol this afternoon, I noticed these cute, tiny flowers on the bush blooming nicely. I didn’t see the bee or fly until the image was on the MacBook’s screen. What is it, a bee or a fly? I can’t tell but it’s more likely to be a bee. Beeautiful! Photographed with the Nikon Z50 and the 16-50mm lens.

Beautiful white flowers! They almost look translucent.
Thanks so much, Eugenia! I was surprised to see them, didn’t know this new replacement bush would flower!
These flowers are really pretty. I didn’t even notice the bug at first.
Thank you so much! The flowers were a nice surprise.
It’s so fun to catch a bug in a photo that you didn’t know was there! That looks like a White Spirea bush. They are so pretty, nice that you were able to catch the blooming stage!!
I looked that name up, you are right, Shelley! I learned that it should be pruned after flowering too. Thanks! 🤗
You’re welcome! We have pink one in the front of our house that the rabbits pruned over the winter…I hope they come back!
I hope they do too, sorry for the delay, I don’t always scroll down. 🤭
No worries, John…you know how delayed I can be some days, weeks, etc. 😉
It looks like a fly to me
I’m still not sure Derrick, but there’s no fly food on that plant.
Maybe the shadow obscured the stripes I would expect to see on a bee
I had that same thought, Derrick. We may never know!
Thank you, Cindy! ❤️
