The Maximilian Sunflower is a Texas Native prairie perennial. It is a very desirable range plant as it is consumed by livestock.
I posted an image last week of Maximilian, a Maximilian Sunflower that was sporting a very nice creature. This is a different kind of creature. My best guess is that this is a Sweat Bee
Maximilian was the only monarch of the Second Mexican Empire. But that’s not the Maximilian I wanted to showcase. It’s the Maximilian Sunflower that is the subject of this post.
