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
