Sleepy Bees

Carpenter Bees get very sleepy in the fall

The garden is full of blossoms with tired bees, 
just sitting there, sometimes for minutes, sometimes hours,
with only the smallest occasional movements

Sometimes sideways,

sometimes nose-first,

Or upside down,

Or two-for-one.

And some don't quite make it home for bed.

Also this post would not be complete without this amazing
richly hued calendula blossom, 
complete with beneficial wasp and a chicken feather- Primrose I think.
Oddly it never quite opened, just stayed like this as long as it lasted.
But still a unique color, most are yellow to white here.
