This was the only bee on the Asters this morning and it may have been the same bee that I photographed last night after 7:00 PM..I noticed it was sleeping on the flower to begin with and I thought it was dead from the heavy rain we had this morning but then it woke up to continue working, none the less worse for wear....

I decided to do a macro on this shot to get a closer view as long as the bee didn't get annoyed with my camera and was concentrating on pollinating the Aster. It didn't have any competition as there are very few Asters that have opened so far but more buds that are ready to open.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

    Fantastic macro! Love the asters. The water drops. Don't believe I've ever seen asters in person.

    I have been finding bees sleeping inside my evening primroses overnight, this year. Used to find them in the hollyhocks before we finally cleared them out, a few years ago.

    Thank you all for your kind words and thanks again to the JPG staff for the courtesy of the
    spotlight....I loved capturing the bee who was by itself and didn't seem bothered by the Aster
    that got saturated by the rain...My shoes also got soaked right through to my socks but it was worth it to get this shot!
