This pollinator (a bee?) doesn’t seem to care. It probably just wants to blend in with its surroundings but has to use warning stripes to ward off predators.
The trumpet-shaped white flowers, cestrum diurnum, look non-descript but stand out in any garden due to the sweet scent that they exude during the day.
They are called “Dama de Dia” for this reason. Despite their simplicity, they attract insects and humans alike.
So who’s blending in and who’s standing out?
