Busy at Work

I was borrowing a camera over the weekend and my husband and I went to Rooks Park, which I've mentioned on several occasions here on this blog. Rooks has a few dozen acres and is surrounded mostly by fields, but is a mere 10-minute drive from the heart of downtown Walla Walla. The camera I was borrowing had a fun macro feature which I've never used before, so I played with it a lot. Here's some kind of insect that resembles a bee but wasn't really, exploring a flower bunch near the river. Though these flowers/plants are very common in this area, I can never remember the name of them. Anyone know?
