Sleeping on the Navajo fleabane

Well look who we discovered sleeping on a Navajo fleabane flower - a Yellow-Faced Bumble Bee Bombus vosnesenskii

This was taken in the afternoon on Sunday, when it was very warm.

The light here is quite different from where we lived, just a few miles away, very intense.

Since the Yellow-Faced Bumble Bee frequently visits poppies for pollen, this one probably was feasting on the California poppies nearby and decided to take a nap.

And here is a side view of the sleeping bee.w
