Sunflower Bee Bed
This bumblebee slept on the sunflower over night. The morning sun finally hit it and I watched the fuzzy insect warm, twitch and wake. Eventually it took off, likely back to its nest. I don’t know if this is a solitary type of bumblebee or not.
I planted the sunflowers all around our cottage so they would grow up and shade our windows during the heat of the summer days. The brow ridges, the overhangs, of our window frames cut the high sun so only a little gets in during the summer. The sunflowers filter the rest.
