That’s interesting. From the reading I’ve done, I was under the impression that bees use a pheromone to show that a particular flower has already been visited. As this one has multiple blossoms consisting of the flower (sorry, don’t know the actual name for such!) maybe they avoid the ones that have already been visited?

Anna,

I seem to have read something about that as well. But I spend hours (no exaggeration) trying to photograph bees, and sometimes I concentrate on just one flower—with or without florets—and many bees will come. Another mystery. I will pay more attention to the floret thing in the future.
