Michael LaSpina, who lives in northern California, took this beautiful photo of a honey bee working a Catsear flower (Hypochaeris radicata) near his home.  Catsear is derived from the words cat’s ear, and refers to the shape and fine hair on the leaves resembling that of the ear of a cat. The plant is also known as “false dandelion”.
