I can’t resist spying on sleeping bumblebees.
Their sleeping positions are sometimes peculiar.
A few rest on the top of flowers — like this bee that looks like it’s sleeping on a pink cloud.
But most of them hang upside-down from blossoms or under leaves.
Joe-pye weed was a particular favorite this year.
This has to be the funniest flower choice I’ve seen. The bees are bigger than the flowers!
I try not to spend too much time looking at them, though, because they seem to get stressed out if I’m too close.
It’s better to take a quick picture and then admire digitally.
