Shelter from the rain

I got home from work yesterday evening soon after an apparently heavy downpour. I wondered where all of the bumblebees went during the rain, so I checked the usually busy giant hyssop. It took some searching, but I eventually found…

wet bumblebee clinging to a flower

… and this unfortunate bumblebee that must not have been able to find shelter in time. He (she?) looked pretty exhausted from hanging on.
