Caption

Pollen beetles (Meligethes sp.) in a flower on a pumpkin plant (Cucurbita maxima). Pollen beetles are very common visitors to many garden flowers, often arriving in large numbers. They are completely harmless, feeding mainly on pollen. However, these beetles have arrived at a female flower, where the only pollen will be that brought here by bees and other pollinating insects.
