This is an extreme close up of one of those little white flowers.   The heat of the day (close to 80 degrees Fahrenheit) made the air fragrant with their heady  aroma, which really wasn’t bad at all.

If you look closely, you can see the flower’s pollen scattered along the inside of the petals.  The bees do frequent these plants when the days are cooler, so I imagine that’s how the pollen was so crazily dispersed.

If you look even more closely, there appears to be a visitor inside the flower, though I can’t quite determine what it might be.  The picture isn’t close enough to get much detail.  It may even be the discarded husk of an insect that has molted.

Who knows?
