Question of the Week: Toadflax

Last week the question was:  What is this flowering weed?


This is oldfield toadflax.  This is a pretty common winter weed.  We see it blooming first thing in the spring all over the place, especially in lawns.  We see it in fields some, though it’s not a serious weed to our winter crops.  It’s fairly showy in fallow fields along with red sorrel.  Here is a good page with a little more info.


Here is this week’s question:  What is this insect on this rapeseed flower?
