Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the damage. There are many causes for general squash blossom rotting. Over/underwatering, too little sun, disease, low humidity, root damage are a few causes.
On the other hand- Blooms will not last very long. They are short lived, and either male or female, so if these are outside of insect reach you may need to hand pollinate them.
