Cucumber start to blooming

yea! my cucumber plant start to flowering. 
Can u see two insects near the yellow bloom?

Cucumber plants keep on producing male flowers before the female one. Male flowers greatly out-number female flowers at the ratio of 10: 1. So really have to wait patiently!!! 

Found one...the female flower!!!

Flower start to bloom =) Pls do keep a closer eye on the flowers that bloom and hand pollinate the flower. 

Yes! The baby cucumber stay!! meaning my manually hand pollination did help =)
