Spring in the Mojave Desert

I've just returned from about a week in the Mojave Desert. Since we had some rain this year, the desert is blooming, especially in the lower elevations and on the warmer south facing slopes.

One of the rare pollinators I spotted. While there are billions of blooms, I didn't see even dozens of pollinators. Where are they all?
