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.
