Northern Bedstraw — with Mosquito

Another image from the Val Marie pasture in southern Saskatchewan: Northern Bedstraw in the rain, with one determined mosquito clinging to a tiny white blossom.

(But better that, than clinging to me!)


Although I wasn't able to smell any scent from these, Northern Bedstraw flowers  are said to be sweet... And yes, they are also said to have once been used to fill mattresses, hence the name... (during Prairie Passages tour)
