Finally Putting It Out There

Some of the flowers that showed signs of blooming a month ago are now actually opening for business.  I wonder what insects are the usual pollinators of these Lenten roses.  I'm sure there's sufficient insect activity in this winter season, although it's not nearly so obvious to us as it is in spring and summer.

I shot these hand-held, lying on the ground, with a 100-400 mm zoom at its longest focal length and minimum focusing distance.

The second shot is cropped just a bit.

One more of the flower in the first shot, with a slightly different vantage getting some sky through the trees in the background.
