Yellow-faced Bumble Bee and the California Poppy

On a windy afternoon, a Yellow-faced bumble bee Bombus vosnesenskii, was determined to collect pollen from a California poppy. As the wind blew the blossom on its stalk, the weight of the bee turned the poppy upside down.

The bee clung on to a petal.

The poppy petals look like a giant umbrella, as the bumble bee gets tossed for a wild ride.

The bee seems to be defying gravity here, standing in the middle of the poppy.
