Spartocytisus supranubius or Cytisus supranubius is the broom which grows above the clouds on the peaks of La Palma and Teide. They’re coming into flower now, and I love the touches of pink before the flowers fully open.
This morning I was up at the observatory to show a group around Gran Telescopio Canarias and I took the chance to photograph the broom. Somehow this turned into yet more photos in my series of “Bugs on flowers”.
I have no idea what the insect above is, althought he onebelow is a bee. Look at all that pollen it’s collected in its knee pouches.
