Sleeping Bee

This morning there were a lot of damp surfaces in the garden and on porch railings, remainders of our wonderful Bay Area fog.

I decided to check for any sleeping bees.

Here is one, a Long-Horned bee sleeping on one of the California Delta sunflowers.

Next to it a caterpillar is also sleeping.

As I observed the bee, it woke up and started to crawl up to the petals of the sunflower.

You can see why the bee is a Summer Long-horned bee. Those antennae!

And I love the tiny hooks on the tip of its legs.
