Phacelia plant flower. Glacier National Park, Montana, USA.
A fly and bee explore a Phacelia flower stalk covered with protruding stamens and pistils. Contact with some species of this genus such as Phacelia crenulata can cause a very unpleasant rash similar to that from poison oak and poison ivy in sensitive individuals, due to the chemical geranylhydroquinone.
