And those beetles ...

I think they're weevils.

These were all over most of the roses on the bush, just skipping the ones where the bees were busy.

Zooming in on a couple. Those aren't weevil stripes: they're flower shadows. I think.

The beetles are tiny, and hard to see clearly, but the longish faces and the antennae;  perched on the tip of the nose, and with a definite angle halfway up, say weevil to me. I've sent a few photos in to BugGuide for a closer ID.
