I have so many “favorite” spring wildflowers, one of which is the Jeffery shooting star (Dodecatheon jeffreyi). This member of the primrose family has reflexed petals. Shooting stars do not have nectar. Instead bees vibrate their thoracic muscles while clinging onto the anthers. This rapid movement causes the pollen to fall onto the bee. These shooting stars were photographed in our pastures (Modoc County CA).
