Sleepy Bees

In late summer the number of pollinators in my garden grows exponentially. As we start to get cool mornings I often find bees tucked under leaves and flowers, sleeping until it's warm enough to be active.

Disturbingly I have a song about it. It's to the tune of Daydream Believer by the Monkees.

Wake up sleepy bee

It's that time of day

To-o pollinate flowers and gather nectar.

Of course I only "wrote" the chorus [aren't you glad?]

Oh and this skipper (butterfly) was asleep, too. They move so fast when they're awake that I seldom get photos of them.


  1. I love the chorus and was singing along....sleeping bees means fall is definitely coming...

  2. Love your pics and love your song.
