What Crawls on Flowers

I was out in what my husband calls the ravine or ditch by our house today. I call it a meadow. Some people think it's a dump unfortunately. I went up a different path than usual and found this bee crawling on these flowers.

When I got home, the beetles were all over my crab apple tree again. Not sure what kind they are. They're red and black. They don't seem to harm the tree and much like the bees they love to get into the flower and get pollen on themselves. I caught this guy sneaking a peak at me from beneath the blossoms.
