When a Bee Lies Sleeping…


…in the blossoms of your hydrangea….

We were walking around the yard this morning, inspecting the fields, so to speak, and I saw this pollen-laden bumble bee.

She (she?  he?) was just resting there.  Not dead – I saw a leg move.  I’m guessing she was still a bit damp from the overnight dew. 

Whatever the reason, she stayed put while I got as close as I could with the camera.

I figure once the sun warms and dries her, she’ll be on her way.

For now, thank you, bee, for letting me photograph you.
