Quick question: Do people eat pumpkin flowers in US? In my native town it is a delicacy (mix it with corn flour, add salt and some spices and deep fry it).

Good question from SBD ... I know deep-fried, battered squash flowers are an appetizer here, so maybe pumpkin flowers are also. Not sure I'd include the bug, though. ;D

I like how the light makes the flower glow. I also like the contrast of colors.

Cool. I found one of these a few a few weeks ago, but no pumpkin or bee with mine. ;-)
