Enchanted surprises

I was driving around in the area today, geocaching with my daughter and her boyfriend, who are down from Dallas. Geocaching takes you down roads and to places you would not normally go down. It gets you off the beaten path. I did see some pretty things on the way.
The purple flower is a passion flower that grows on a vine. It is one of my favorites and I want to start it in my yard this year. The vine here had lots of very large black bees on it but I saw this one yellow bee so I took its picture. The bee is at least one and a half inches long.
The next picture is of a birds nest I found in a shrub and it was about 2 feet off the ground so I was able to look inside and see that it had eggs in it. The eggs are white with red specks on one end. Anyone know what kind of eggs they are?
The yellow flowers were near a train depot and I don't know what they are. Anyone know? I will have to research this one. They were beautiful!
I enjoyed the day.

I can't help you with identification but have to say how beautiful that passion flower is. I've never seen a real one - only pictures (and this is one of the best I've seen).

Thanks, I love taking photos of things, especially flowers...everywhere I go.
