Stealthy little dude, isn’t he?

While shooting bees working over our new lemon trees (Too Loaded to Fly), I noticed this guy tucked in deep among the flowers.

It’s nice to see that in addition to the lemon trees providing fruit and the most delightful aroma you could imagine, we’re also feeding the local wildlife. Bees are having a tough time of it, lately. Symbiosis rocks!

There’s nothing better than a warm place, a bit of nectar, and a good snooze.

Without a doubt, this has been one of the mildest winters for this area. Even though I’ve lived in colder places like Montréal and New Hampshire, now that I’ve moved to the south, I don’t miss the snow at all.

On one particularly warm day in December, we noticed a large bee working on a new Meyers Lemon tree that we have waiting to go in the ground. He seemed a bit sluggish, until we realized that he had fallen asleep! Later, as the sun warmed even more, he flew on his way.

Single exposure, f/3.5, ISO400, 1/160s
