Snoozing Bees

Not all honeybees go back the hive at night, nor all bumblebees back to their nest. I often find them sleeping on the mints, sunflowers and other plants.  In the morning you can see them waking up with the dew covering them, spreading their wings to dry off, and then continuing on with the work they left off the day before.This bumblebee is snuggled down in a bed of Cosmos pollen.
