Bald-Faced Hornet (Dolichovespula maculata), member of the wasp family (Vespidae), drinks goldenrod nectar (Solidago sp.) in September, Rondeau Provincial Park, southwestern Ontario, Canada.  Goildenrod pollen is too sticky and heavy to be dispersed on the wind, so the plant relies for pollination on the numerous insects who feast on its pollen and/or nector.
