Even busy bees need a nap

Late one afternoon, I went out to harvest tomatoes and cut flowers for our table. I was snipping away, marveling at how exquisite the dahlias are this year, and came upon these cuties! It was a warm afternoon, so the bumble bees were not cold stunned, just taking a break from gathering nectar and pollen. I kept an eye on them for a while, being sure not to disturb their snoozing with my busyness. Eventually, one of them awoke, walked over to the other and nudged her, and off they flew … a gentle reminder to me that all creatures need an occasional nap amidst even the busiest days.
