Just a plain ol' honeybee. There were many dozen bees of all sorts enjoying this very fragrant plant outside at the Highland Park Conservatory. I wasn't familiar with the plant, but I think the worker told me it's called Snakeroot.
I am strong, because I've been weak.
I am fearless, because I've been afraid.
I am wise, because I've been foolish.

I looked this worm up again. I believe its a Tomato Horned Worm. It turns into the Five Spotted Moth. The white parasites are Wasp eggs.
