    It has been a tough season for the bees, with all the rain, constant and stuttering through the year and the apparent dearth of flowering plants – at least in the fields where I first found hundreds of them, now so few. Other, unnatural reasons too.

    This one couldn't keep going in the shade of a recent sunny day so I helped it along a bit, a drop of honey it took no interest in once the sun came to warm it up. I found it in various locations through the day and night, the temperatures were that critical it had to stop often and wait for the sun to catch up, or come up.

    If a bee can look old and grizzled, this is the one.

    Thanks for comments all.

    ... as long as there's something to shoot and I can hold it steady. :)
