Waking Up – and a Photobomber

Might not be fair to call that green, metallic sweat bee a photobomber. I’m ashamed to say I didn’t even see it until the picture was on my monitor. The bumble was sleeping on the salvia and just waking up. I anthropomorphize some, but that stretching… A good part of waking up. Anyway, I don’t often see the sweat bees sleeping anywhere. They’re generally pretty active, but looking at all the pictures, this one was inert. I wish I’d have seen it and gotten some shots that were in focus. So seldom that they hold still even a little. Anyway, double bee today. If nothing else, it really illustrates the size disparity between the two varieties.
