Insect having a drink on an Indian Blanket flower in Palo Corona Park

I came upon this insect having a drink of dew at noon on the Indian Blanket flower in a small meadow next to a moss covered pond. I was actually trying to get a mallard photo and saw this little guy looking at me. He walked from the center of the flower to the edge to get a better look at me. I snapped his picture and left him to it.
