Mandarin tree update

We had my Texas satsuma tree (Citrus unshiu 'Miho') in the garage all winter. In the past week or so, it put on loads of blossoms. So if I want fruit this fall, I decided I'd better get it outside for some sex.....I mean, pollination. Right away, the bees and other winged insects showed up. And oh man, if you could only INHALE the sweet aroma of those flowers! Wow-we-zowee!

Mournful thyris (Pseudothyris sepulchralis)
Gray hairstreak (Strymon melinus)
