Evening Bumble in the Salvia

Didn’t get to shoot but for a minute very, very late yesterday…to no good ends. Well, a bonus wasp for later, I guess. But here’s one from the day before. Great wings and a pretty full pollen basket for a bumblebee. This bee had spent a lot of time on the foxtail lily (see the post from June 9) – kind of a burnt or dark orange color. Think this is a new salvia for this year. And in the lower right is a ubiquitous iris leaf.
